Our Commitment to Recycling
Founder & CEO, Aaron Westbrook began researching in 2017 how to make our process of fabricating prosthetics sustainable and affordable to produce as a growing non-profit. We are excited to introduce a new way to support our mission by collecting and donating your plastic waste to Form5. Plastic waste collected is run through our propriety recycling process developed over the last two years. This plastic is shredded, extruded, and then used to 3-D print our prosthetic devices. Form5 is on track of reaching our goal of being a zero-waste organization by the year 2020.
Form5 is pausing ALL plastics collection! Please check back in 2020.
We encourage our Form5 Recyclers to continue recycling by supporting other collection initiatives in the community with your plastics.
