We’re proud to be collaborating with Pearlfisher – who have created the ‘The Pearlfisher Garden’ for the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show which features a 3D-printed sculpture of a Pearl Diver made from our recycled PLA plastic.
“The Pearlfisher Garden consists of a series of below-water level aquatic tanks that transport visitors into a unique underwater world. Beneath a 3D-printed sculpture of a Pearl Diver made from recycled PLA plastic, will be an array of exotic plants that creatively showcase the beauty and possible desertification of the world’s most precious garden. Live fish will remind visitors of the threat to the food chain posed by ocean plastics and their associated toxins. At the centre of the garden sits ‘The Coral Man’ from renowned sculptor and environmentalist, Jason deCaires Taylor. The boundary walls incorporate 1,000 recycled plastic water bottles, representing how much plastic packaging is thrown into the oceans every 5 seconds.”
Filamentive is a UK brand specialising in high quality 3D printer filament made from recycled and sustainable plastics, including PLA, ABS and PETG.
