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
By careful selection we get the plastic that's perfect for your filament!
Together with local waste pickers clean PET bottles and shred them into 6mm flakes.
We use a low-cost, open-source extruder that converts PET plastic flakes into 3D print filament.
Together with universities, maker spaces and our corporate partners we extensively test our filament.
We ship our filament in recyclable packaging directly to you so you can print whatever your heart desires.
We will reinvest 25% of our profits back into waste picker communities to help build a sustainable future ripe with opportunity
