Conscious Effort

In 2018, US landfills received 27 million tons of plastic. Polypropylene, a plastic found in everything from water bottles to packing tape, was a massive contributor. Only about 1% of polypropylene created in the US every year is recycled, with the rest going to landfills, where the material takes 20-30 years to break down. At FYDER Filament, we are making an effort to keep polypropylene waste produced by factories from reaching the ocean by converting it into innovative 3D printing filament.

Conserve

We believe our mission to keep plastic waste from the world’s oceans starts at the manufacturer level. That’s why we collect polypropylene waste bags directly from the manufacturers to prevent any from getting to landfill.

Rewrite

We give the plastic waste from manufacturers new life by melting and extruding it into viable 3D filament. Our developing product is currently 100% recycled material.

Of the 5800 million tonnes of primary plastic no longer in use, only 9 percent has been recycled since 1950.1

At FYDER, we are making an effort to curb the landfill rate of manufacturer-used polypropylene plastics.
