Is hemp filament a greener option?

The reduction of plastic is one of the sustainable benefits of 3D printing with hemp and also the fact that hemp is biodegradable and can be grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. 3D printing itself has proven to be less wasteful, cost effective and fast production with the freedom of easy design changes.

How is Hemp filament made?

Hemp filament is made of biodegradable thermoplastic and finely ground up short hemp fibers. Hemp filament is traditionally made without the use of dyes and allows it to maintain its natural brown shade and bio fill is slightly visible. Although you can add dyes to make it different colors we choose to use the natural color.
