Eco friendly casting resin

Hello, I’m looking for more eco friendly casting resins for props.  In particular ones that won’t have any peanut or tree nut derivatives.  I have a severe peanut and treenut allergy.  Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Hi John,

    You may want to reach out to resin manufacturers and let them know about your concerns, as well as what use cases you have for the resin, and they may be able to help you.

    Here are a couple:

    Reynolds Advanced Materials (makers of Smooth-On)

    Silpak Inc.

    Hi John,

    When it comes to environmental impact the main thing a studio can do is be mindful and keep track of where waste is generated and try to reduce it, look for opportunities to recycle or use recycled materials, look into alternatives to harsher materials, and ensure things are properly disposed of.
