Why We're All About Cornstarch PLA at The Hogarth Workshop

Hey There, 3D Printing Enthusiasts!

If you've been following The Hogarth Workshop, you know we're not just about making cool stuff. We're also big on doing it the right way, which means being kind to our planet. That's why we're super proud to tell you about the material we use for all our 3D prints: bio-friendly PLA made from cornstarch. Yep, you read that right—cornstarch!

What's the Deal with Cornstarch PLA?

So, what's so special about this cornstarch-based PLA? Well, for starters, it's biodegradable. Unlike the usual plastics that stick around for hundreds of years, this stuff can be composted. Plus, it's made from renewable resources. That's a win-win in our book!

Why Cornstarch, Though?

Apart from being eco-friendly, cornstarch PLA is a dream to work with. It's versatile and gives us the quality we want, whether we're crafting intricate models or functional parts. So, we're not just being good to Earth; we're also making sure you get the best products possible.

Keeping it Local

Now, here's the cherry on top: we do our best to get our PLA from UK manufacturers. Why? Well, it's simple:

  1. Less Travel, Less Carbon: The closer the source, the less carbon footprint. It's as simple as that.

  2. Supporting Our Neighbours: We love supporting local businesses, especially those that are as committed to sustainability as we are.

  3. Quality You Can Trust: Being close to our suppliers means we can keep an eye on quality. We want only the best for you and for Mother Earth.

Wrapping it Up

So there you have it. When you buy from The Hogarth Workshop, you're not just getting a fantastic 3D-printed item; you're also steering clear of traditional oil-based plastics that harm our planet. We think that's something worth celebrating, and we hope you do too.
