Our Story 

Friendly Environment 

Friendly Environment was established in 2006 and specializes in pollution controls that are highly effective and environmentally sustainable. Friendly Environment prides itself on its commitment to excellence in product research and development, performing an exhaustive array of testing during product development. The company is headquartered in Shelbyville, Tennessee, 60 miles southeast of Nashville.

The company's first product was the Erosion Eel. The idea was born out of the constant frustrations of installing and maintaining silt fence at construction sites.

Friendly Environment developed an innovative and alternative product to use at home construction sites that is easy to install, easy to maintain, easy to move, and is reusable from site to site. From this effort, the Erosion Eel concept was created.


The Erosion Eel, along with other Friendly Environment products, is now available for purchase across North America and Europe.
