AllerAir Q&A: You use lots of Activated Carbon in your air purifiers, does that have anything to do with the term Carbon Footprint?

The word “carbon” in the term Carbon Footprint refers to“carbon dioxide”. In terms of pollution, carbon dioxide is a waste gas produced by fossil fuel combustion and in this context can be considered an environmental pollutant. 

Ironically, “Activated Carbon” is actually a physical material that removes pollutants. It’s made from natural sources like wood and coconut shells and is highly efficient for filtering airborne and waterborne toxins, especially chemicals and odors. Its use has actually been traced back thousands of years.
