There's too much cow fat in the world...
No, for real, there's so much cow fat that we no longer know what to do with it all. We used to be able to fry things in it, but saturated fats, when fried, turn into trans fats. And, nowadays, people are frightened of trans fats. So what are we going to do with the 200 lbs of tallow that result from the processing of just one cow?
Why...make motor oil from it, if course!
Green Earth Technologies is taking all of that excess, inexpensive, and previously useless tallow and turning it into cleaning solutions and motor oil for cars, lawnmowers, and boats. The company's slogan, "Be Green, Sacrifice Nothing," is kind crap...because your motor oil is one small part of the impact of whatever device you're putting it in, but that doesn't mean this isn't pretty cool.
Their website talks a lot about sustainability...packaging made from recycled milk jugs, soy-based inks, etc. But it doesn't talk a lot about the fact that their products are pretty much made from lard. I suppose they're entitled to their marketing strategies but, honestly, the cow fat part is the coolest thing about this stuff!
