This article is dedicated to all Shepherd Filters customers, because not only does your business benefit from using our disposable kitchen grease filters, you are also helping to support two important industries.
There are plenty of obvious benefits to using disposable wool kitchen grease filters, yet there are two in particular that deserve more attention. With every pack of Shepherd Filters that is shipped out, our customers are helping to support farmers and people with disabilities to get through another day with hope and determination.
Without our farmers, there would be no food on our plates, no clothes on our backs, and no bio-degradable hood filters to protect kitchen exhaust systems from fires for that matter! Shepherd Filters regularly contributes to organisations and charities, whose primary purpose is to provide support and assistance to the farming industry, including sheep farmers. Wool has a natural affinity for oils, making it a great choice for grease containment.
Just like supporting farmers is part of our business ethos, so is supporting people with disability. We are very proud of our partnerships with for-purpose community organisations that have been providing NDIS employment, training and support to assist people with disability to find and maintain steady jobs. Their amazing team provides the following services to Shepherd Filters:
• Processing wool filter media into various sizes
• Quality control
Employment is a cornerstone for independence and improved life choices that not only benefits the person with a disability, but it also provides social and economic benefits for the entire community. These amazing individuals can provide new skills and bring a wealth of creativity and innovation.
Your investment and trust in our product is helping us to:
• Support a key industry that is vital to our economy; and
• Invest in an otherwise socially isolated group of individuals
Human potential realised!
