Everything we do has an impact on our environment, and no matter how carefully we try to walk, we leave footprints. The HG one project is trying to tread softly.

We’ve built a grinder that doesn’t have circuit boards and switches that will burn out or break. Our grinder is powered by you. No motors, no electricity. It’s made to last and to be handed down to the next generation rather than end up in a landfill. Deliberately easy to service at home, using no special tools. And not that you would want to consider this option, but by weight, 95% of the HG one grinder is recyclable.

No, it’s not as easy as flipping a switch to turn it on, and it does require more effort to use than an electric grinder. But at a certain point, we have to stop doing things just because we can, and start doing things because we know better.
