Here at FP3D we are committed to the introduction of sustainable 3D printing products.
We are proud to be a member of Filamentive's 3D printing alliance, an initiative designed to promote the use of reusable filaments and techniques in the industry.
This benefits the planet in the following ways:
Reducing the environmental impact of plastic-rich products
Minimising the amount of plastic being sent to the diminishing landfill sites
Avoiding consumption of the Earth’s finite oil stocks
Lowering energy demand compared to producing new, virgin polymers
Another initiative we are involved in is Polymaker's 'One Tree Planted' scheme whereby for every reel of their recyclable product that is sold a tree is planted in the region it was supplied too.
The first stage in this is introducing ranges of product that have been manufactured from pre used polymers (that means all those spaghetti monsters and last minute failed prints get put to good use!). We also aim to introduce products that have sustainable packaging for example cardboard or re-usable spools, again to reduce the build up of plastic waste.
On this page you will see some of the eco-friendly product ranges that we supply, if there is anything you can't see please get in touch with us
