We’re excited to announce the launch of the Reflow Filament Kickstarter Campaign. Reflow filament is made from recycled PET plastic bottles collected in developing regions. We give makers everywhere the opportunity to print with socially responsible 3D print filament, without having to compromise on price or quality. Profits are used to improve the lives of waste collectors all around the world. For every kg of filament you buy 120 bottles are removed from the streets of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and a waste collector can feed his family for 5 days.

We’ve got some exciting rewards out there. From work from some of the best 3D artist out there to being the first to print with Recycled filament made in Africa. We need your help to scale up our production and lunch the international distribution. Join us in making 3D printing truly social and check out our kickstarter campaign at http://kck.st/1X80WjU.

Thanks and looking forward hearing from you all!

It’s truly appreciative to launch such a campaign. Salute your hard strive and keep continuing it. As you have published it on kickstarter it will definitely help to complete mission of bringing the creative projects to life. It helps in backing up the published projects by increasing the backers count. Even I tried, by submitting an article. And guess was, it has increased the count.

Thanks for the nice words ;)! The campaign was a succes and we’re really excited bringing the filament to our backers!

Its really appreciative to do such kind of social work. Kickstarter website will definitely help you in raising the funds with numerous backers.

Jasper,

You collect PET bottles in an African country. is Reflow safe from health point of view? Could you show REACH and RoHS compliancy certificates that show that your filament contains less than the legally depicted levels of heavy metals and brominated chemical compounds?

look forward for your response.

kind regards

Hi Jan Willem,

Thanks for the question! We’re indeed working on Reach/Rohs testing. I went through your profile and saw you had a similar experience creating recycled filament with innofil3D. We’re currently considering the option of working with an external consultancy for certification. We were wondering if you have a similar process in your work for Innofil3D and if so did you end up using external support for the full certification?

Best,

Jasper
