    Hi Lauren, I'm just curious to know how you plan to return the resources you are taking from the lake's ecosystem. It is always hard to see that companies continuously take resources without a plan to replace what's being taken.

    @Donald Hey there--we try to keep a respectful tone here on the discussion. It's natural that we expect a kind of anonymity on the web, but we are different on this site. We put a human name and face behind every Grommet, and our team is out there personally connecting via video, social media, phone, and this discussion. You may not share Melissa's concern, or are simply trying to make a joke....but I feel compelled to throw some air cover over to poor Melissa! (I am Grommet co-founder. I read every comment posted here, every day.)

    Thanks so much Jules, as a scientist/environmentalist I'm used to thinking about the delicate balance of our ecosystems. I do not intent to offend anyone but I'm also not touched by @Donald's comment, I understand that my appreciations and concerns are not everyone's. Cheers!

    @Melissa good heavens. Melissa, do you return the oxygen you breath, the food you consume, the water you drink. I doubt that this glacial mud product will make a dent in the delta from which it is harvested.

    @Jen Those who are so worried, I suggest that when you remove the mud from your face, bag it and send it back. I bet Lauren will be glad to throw it back in. Cliff

    @Clifford Btw, what happens to men if they use this mud?

    @Jen Really?? The air a human breathes goes back into the atmosphere as CO2 which plants uses as food and create O2. Food and water are similarly recycled because the human body at its basest level is an in/out system. Intake occurs, an action is taken on the material and a changed version of the material is excreted. What Melissa is questioning makes sense. Unless Lauren or a hydrologist/hydro-geologist have studied the area and determined that X cubic feet of the mud disappears naturally and Y cubic feet are deposited annually and Y is equal to or greater than X and the amount taken by mask creation is somewhere between X and Y or at a level determined safe for the environment you can end up with an ecologically damaging deficit.

    A legitimate question.
