Wheat Bran Waste Is Used To 3D Print These Home Goods To Reduce Personal Carbon Footprint | Greenfill3D

One of the simplest and most effective ways to lower our personal carbon footprint is by reusing the things which we use on a daily basis. If we give a closer look at the objects around us, we will find many of them are plastic products that degrade the environment. To reduce the amount of waste generated by furniture and home products, Polish-based Greenfill3D has taken the initiative to use wheat bran waste to 3D print storage compartments and advertising racks. This lowers the need for plastic-based items that often end up in landfills. The company believes that individuals can actually make a difference by using sustainable materials to design products to reduce personal greenhouse gas emissions. Take a look at these delightful 3D printed items made from recycled wheat bran waste:

The home collection created by Greenfill3d is made of several components that the firm 3D Printed individually. For instance, the advertising stand designed by the company consists of 34 separate parts that are joined together for simple assembly.

This mixture of wheat bran waste and PLA, called GF3D, is then passed into forty 3D printers to produce everyday used household products such as advertising racks and storage cabinets.
