Why do you only produce ABS filament/pellets (and not other types of 3D printing materials)?

Wouldn’t printing with PLA (or other bioplastics) address the environmental pollution problem associated with the consumption of 3D printing plastic?

The concept of bioplastics being eco-friendly is a controversial topic with many arguments on both sides. Many experts feel that bioplastics’ eco-friendly image is a misconception perpetuated by industry “greenwashing” of bioplastics. PLA is often thought to be no better for the environment than petroleum-based plastics due to the amount of resources used to grow and process the corn, and its inability to biodegrade in a landfill. Additionally, making use of a recycled material reduces waste and the need for new production.
