Thanks to your support, Polymaker has been nominated for Sustainability in Additive Manufacturing and Material Company of the Year by 3D Printing Industry Awards 2022.
Sustainability in Additive Manufacturing
Since the launch of PolyTerra™ at the beginning of last year, our customers have planted over 340,000 trees by choosing to print with PolyTerra™ PLA over other materials. Polymaker pledged to create the most environmentally friendly 3D printing material which is materialized by offsetting Co2 in partnership with One-Tree-Planted. With trees planted in 15 different regions spanning 6 continents, PolyTerra™ customers provide benefit to their local region and One-Tree-Planted ensures the diversity of forest is populated with local species. To date, the PolyTerra™ program has offset 6,800,000 Kg of Co2 in under 2 years with the trees set to continually offset Co2 for decades to come. It’s important to remember that the true benefits of trees and healthy forests go far beyond carbon storage. Their value for biodiversity, social impact, wellbeing and the stability of the global climate is well documented.
As for the material itself, PolyTerra™ PLA is a compound of PLA bio-plastic and bio-composite, containing less plastic to degrade and making the material more environmental friendly without affecting the printability. Now available in over 30 matte colors its clear to see why this 3D printing material is so popular and with its 100% recycled cardboard spool it’s hard to disagree.
