FILTROL: Keeping Nature Natural
Filtrol is based in Minnesota.
90,000 miles of shoreline. More than 10,000 lakes. The headwaters of the Mississippi River.
Whether we’re paddling through the serene waters of the BWCA, walleye fishing on Lake of the Woods, or disappearing into an afternoon of water sports, we’re known for water in Minnesota. And at Filtrol, we love the water and everything about the outdoors. We grew up hunting and fishing, enjoying the north woods and surviving crazy winters. We love the landscapes, the seasons, and the culture. Minnesota is our home…even if it’s not for everyone.
But we understand that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to our serene landscapes and idyllic lakeside cottages. There are parts of Minnesota that look pristine, seemingly untouched by humanity.
Until you look closer.
Millions of pounds of plastic ends up in our planet’s water supplies, much of it going unseen. Thousands of microplastics are flushed into our ecosystem with each load of laundry. These microscopic pollutants end up in the most remote parts of our country. Deep in Minnesota’s boundary waters. Even far away, high up in the Rocky Mountains. Plastic is everywhere.
FILTROL – Back to Real Water
Between the research we’ve done, the solutions we’ve built, and the opportunities we’re pursuing, we have begun to see real, measurable change happening in the world around us. Plastic is being stopped in its tracks everywhere that a Filtrol is installed. New iterations of the solution now nearing production are showing even greater potential to solve this plastic pollution problem.
