Reflow: Quality 3D Printer Filament that’s Ethical & Sustainable

The world's 1st Sustainable Social Cause 3D Print filament

What do we do?

Reflow converts recyclable plastic into ethical, high-quality 3D print filament using open source technology. By sourcing the plastic and producing the filament in developing countries, we increase the income of waste pickers by up to 20 times.

Our mission is to significantly improve the lives of the more than 40 million waste pickers worldwide who earn less than $2 a day and to create a global, socially responsible 3D printing community

How it works

1. Collect

High Quality Plastic

By careful selection we get the plastic that's perfect for your filament!

2. Clean & Shred

Prepare Waste for Processing

Together with local waste pickers clean PET bottles and shred them into 6mm flakes.

3. Produce

Turn flakes into filament

We use a low-cost, open-source extruder that converts PET plastic flakes into 3D print filament.

4. Test

Ensure High Quality

Together with universities, maker spaces and our corporate partners we extensively test our filament.

5. Ship

Delivered to your Door

We ship our filament in recyclable packaging directly to you so you can print whatever your heart desires.

6. Share

Profits flow back to waste pickers

We will reinvest 25% of our profits back into waste picker communities to help build a sustainable future ripe with opportunity
