For years, we’ve been doing research that has the potential to make a global difference and we’ve distributed our plastic filtration products to almost every continent. As the problem becomes more and more apparent and as people become more and more aware of the need to make significant moves in a better direction, there are more contributors to the conversations and more innovators to the problem. Plastic, after all, is found deep in the ocean and on top of the highest mountains. It’s impacting countless species of fish and birds, being ingested by animals and people alike, and is eventually found on our plates and even in our beer.
At Filtrol, we want to be part of the global solution to this problem.
But we also want to be part of the local solution. In Minnesota, our local ecosystem is one of the best things we have going for us. With over 10,000 lakes, miles of serene landscapes, and more water front property than coastal states, we are an outdoor enthusiast’s dream with four seasons of outdoor activity, from snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing in the winter to jet skis, wakeboarding, and camping in the summer. Avid hunters and fishermen have miles upon miles of forests, fields, trails, lakes, rivers, and creeks. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area offers solitude and the southern and western parts of our state produce crops that are shipped across the country.
In all of this flurry of activity and opportunity in our state, we are serious about keeping Minnesota all that it was meant to be for our children and grandchildren…and then for their children and grandchildren.
Part of this means that we’re doing the hard work and research to make sure the products we build in our labs are easy to install and maintain for people. We don’t want anybody to not use our plastic filtration system because it didn’t seem worth the headache.
We also are committed to keeping the Filtrol affordable. Being socially and environmentally responsible shouldn’t cost so much. An affordable, easy-to-install and maintain filtration system can make it possible for individual people to make exponential impacts on massive, microscopic issues.
We’re also serious about making the Filtrol effective.
The Filtrol is already doing good work, but we know we can do better. We’re always trying to improve our catch rates. We’re continuing our efforts to produce minimal waste even in our manufacturing, so that from start to finish, the Filtrol is environmentally-conscious. We’re always trying to expand our reach, so that more people in more places are using the Filtrol. And we’re always trying to protect the place we love to call home. Minnesota!
