Yes, I like to keep things natural as well.  But, if faced with a 
decision between digging clay from a "natural" environment, or using 
harmless factory bi-products (it isn't veegum, just what's left after 
they extract what they need), I will always choose the latter.  
Trucking it to our site will actually use less fossil fuels than if 
they dropped it at their usual location.

Krista- I am glad to see reasonable minds prevail.  We all make choices 
and pick battles, this byproduct sounds like a great solution for you.

There was a great, fine  black sand I got free ( broken bags) at a 
local builder's supplier, I called the manufacturer in Canada  and when 
I checked out how it was made,what it was for I found out the "blast 
sand"  was for taking off paint on ships and cars,  AND was actually 
used in aquariums  for pricey tropical fish too!!

Denouncing something, or smearing it's name or use, without proper 
information, based on one's  irrational fear does not serve the "good 
of all"
