The goal of our Grease Hero Drain Guard is to help protect our waterways, oceans and the environment as a whole—this mission extends into the way we approach manufacturing the Grease Hero as well. We understand the importance of protecting the environment for future generations, and this environmentalist mindset is woven into every aspect of our business.
The Environmental Impact of Manufacturing
It’s no secret that manufacturing has a negative impact on the environment and planet earth. The introduction of fossil fuel technology during the Industrial Revolution marked the moment of true mass manufacturing—along with increased factory efficiency, elevated living standards and environmental damage.
“Historically, it has usually taken some time before we can really realize the specific damage that certain technologies can cause. This means that there is often a significant amount of damage done before policy can catch up. However, we have a fairly successful track record of identifying and eventually curbing the impacts of industry on the environment. For example, through policy and the improvement of new technologies, air pollution from manufacturing in England has been greatly decreased since it was at its worst” (Cerasis).
As the push and pull over policy and regulation continue, it is important to note that many companies and startups are taking it upon themselves to do the right thing and develop products in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
Manufacturing the Grease Hero
We are focused on using sustainable manufacturing practices for the Grease Hero. As we scale Grease Hero, we are always looking for efficient and environmentally responsible ways to manufacture. This means that we are talking and meeting with suppliers that have this same mindset and understand the best manufacturing practices, in order to reduce our footprint on the environment.
A Healthy Planet & Clean Water Supply
When FOG (fats, oils and grease) waste makes its way into our home’s plumbing, city sewer lines and water treatment facilities it causes major problems. FOG waste floats down your drain as a liquid, but quickly solidifies in your pipes and city sewer lines, causing buildup and restricting the flow of sewage. When pipes become completely clogged, this sewage is no longer able to drain properly and spills out into your home and comes up through street drains and manholes. When raw sewage flows into the environment, the delicate ecosystem is damaged and our drinking water becomes contaminated. The Grease Hero aims to eliminate these sanitary sewer overflows and protect local ecosystems.
By utilizing sustainable and responsible manufacturing practices and stay strong to our mission, we aim to have a positive impact on our fresh water supply, waterways, oceans and the environment as a whole.
