Our disposable kitchen grease filters capture up to an unprecedented 98% of airborne grease before it enters the exhaust system where it can otherwise accumulate and become a fire risk. With grease minimised for the long-term, you are safe-guarding your business.
Airborne grease is prevented from entering the kitchen hood exhaust system by the canopy filters. Therefore, it provides immediate savings by reducing labour costs associated with commercial cleaning metal grease filters. This also reduces the frequency of routine kitchen duct cleaning dramatically.
Shepherd Filters are made from 100% wool, a sustainable and renewable material source. We help businesses save energy with a cleaner kitchen exhaust system, hood, rooftop fans, HVAC and other rooftop equipment. This results in more efficient operation of the equipment, not to mention less maintenance!

Because our disposable kitchen grease filters are made from pure Wool. The filter media is carbon-neutral and will break down in the landfill in weeks to less than 1 year depending on environmental conditions and this is due to it’s high nitrogen content.

HOW CAN CLEANING YOUR KITCHEN EXHAUST SYSTEM BECOME A MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TASK?
First let’s ask, what exactly does it mean to be environmentally friendly?
Environment-friendly, eco-friendly, nature-friendly and green are all marketing terms. Laws, guidelines and policies that cause minimal or no harm upon ecosystems/environment.
How can you be more environmentally friendly when it comes to cleaning a commercial kitchen exhaust system?
Use Less Water
The amount of water used to clean kitchen grease filters can mount up quickly. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, since 2002 there has been increasing evidence of the adverse effects of increased water use on river health. It is now widely recognised that taking too much water out of Australia’s rivers and groundwater systems can have detrimental economic and environmental consequences.
Use Less Chemicals
Chemicals can enter the air, water, and soil when they are produced, used or disposed of. Their impact on the environment is determined by:
- the amount of the chemical that is released
- the type and concentration of the chemical
- where the chemical is found
Some chemicals can be harmful if released even when there is not an immediate, visible impact. Some chemicals are of concern as they can work their way into the food chain and accumulate/persist in the environment for many years.
Shepherd Filters disposable kitchen grease filters assist your business to become friendlier for the environment.
Go For Natural
Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep and is 100% natural, not man-made. Our filters are made from wool and can be thrown out with your regular trash. It is also renewable – as long as there is grass for sheep to graze on, they will continue to produce new fleece. This makes wool a sustainable, renewable fibre source.
At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil where it decomposes. It also releases valuable nutrients into the ground. When a natural wool fibre is disposed of in soil, it takes a very short time to break down. Whereas most synthetics are extremely slow to degrade even with mixed synthetic wool. Only wool is biodegradable.
A Safer Solution
Wool is naturally safe. It does not promote the growth of bacteria. Due to its high water and nitrogen content, wool is naturally flame-retardant. It has a far higher ignition threshold than many other fibres.
Shepherd Filters disposable kitchen grease filters capture up to 98% of airborne grease before it enters your kitchen exhaust system. Not only saving YOU but also saving our environment.
