As a manufacturer that uses tonnes of plastic a year, we feel we have a duty to uphold environmentally friendly practices.
- We launched our own filament brand with a focus on eco friendly filament. Not only does this significantly reduce our carbon footprint, but also allows us to helps our users do the same.
- Where possible we print with Eco PLA, our PLA made from recycled material. We are also looking into other recycled materials which we can add to our filament range.
- PLA is made from plant starches so is a sustainable plastic unlike oil based alternatives.
- 3D Printing is an additive process producing inherently less waste than subtractive processes such as CNC machining, where you start with a solid block and gradually remove material.
- Our packaging is recyclable and we also make use of recycled packaging where possible.
