Hi. We've Eliminated the Last Argument for Using Petroleum
We want every bike out there to be petroleum-free. Eco Sheep is priced the same as petroleum-based chain lubes, eliminating the last argument for using harmful petroleum.
You + Eco Sheep = Making Bicycles Greener.
Our incredible Lubricants
BICYCLES CAUSE ONE OF THE LARGEST OIL SPILLS IN AMERICA EACH YEAR
Who would have thought that riding a bicycle would be so bad for the environment? Every year in America, bicycle riders squirt 6.3 million gallons of harmful petroleum-based bicycle chain lubricant all over their chains and gears to keep them moving. Unfortunately, with nowhere else to go, all of this dangerous petroleum oil makes it way back into the environment. This petroleum, which was once safely under 5,000 feet of solid rock, now pollutes our soil and waterways. Lubricating our bicycles causes one of that largest oil spills in America each year.
At Eco Sheep, we love the environment and our bikes! We decided to do something about this problem by developing a line of petroleum-free, eco and earth-friendly bicycle chain lubricants made from non-toxic, biodegradable lanolin oil. When we developed Eco Sheep, we started from the ground up and included everything in the design of our products – from riding styles to bike types and even the applicator. We make excellent lubricants that fit the needs of bicyclists, not just the metal chains. We also created the packaging to be more useful and eco-friendly. Our container and applicator are an industry first, with a reusable, recyclable metal can and an incredible precision brush applicator right in the lid. Our container replaces the plastic, wasteful, drip-style bottle used by petroleum products; no more squirting bicycle chain lubricant all over the place! Even better – Eco Sheep chain lubricants are 100 percent oil, compared to petroleum-based products that are thinned down with filler and petroleum thinners.

It's not the 1970s anymore, and there is simply no reason in today's world that we should have to use chemicals that are harmful to us and the environment just so that we can enjoy our bikes. Cheap petroleum is easy money for lubricant companies, but when the product warnings and danger symbols are longer than the directions, it's time to change the product.
I started Eco Sheep with the idea of creating safe, high-performing chain lubes to replace harmful petroleum. With help from bicycle riders like you, Eco Sheep has grown to become the leader in cyclist friendly bike lubes, and we manufacture the happiest and most environmentally certified bike lubes in the world. Thank you! -Sam
