This collection of everyday items is 3D printed from disused wheat bran to create zero waste

Greenfill3d is a Polish homeware and furniture company that uses wheat bran waste to 3D print homeware like storage compartments and advertising media.

One of the easiest ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint is to look at the construction of the items we use every day. A closer look reveals that many of the products we surround ourselves with are made from materials that aren’t so good for landfill. Designed for obsolescence, most of these plastic-based products end up in landfills where they could sit for years.

Hoping to change the way we consume household goods and everyday products, the Polish company Greenfill3d produces objects made from biodegradable or bio-compostable materials in accordance with the principles of zero waste and the circular economy.

Designer: Greenfill3d

Each item that comprises Greenfill3d’s homeware collection is made up of multiple pieces that are individually 3D printed. The advertising stand, for example, consists of 34 individual elements, each of which is 3D printed separately and then assembled for easy assembly.

Each product in the Greenfill3d collection is made from one of three sustainable materials: GF3D Branfill3d (wheat bran material), BioWOOD (powdered wood material) and BioCREATE (compostable material). In collaboration with one of the largest food producers in Europe, Greenfill3d collects wheat bran waste from pasta.

From there, the waste is measured for production before being combined with polylactic acid (PLA) to develop a filament used in 3D printing. This mixture of PLA and wheat bran waste, what Greenfill3d calls GF3D, is then fed into 40 3D printers to create everyday objects like storage cabinets and advertising materials.
