r/e PLA (recycled/eco PolyLactic Acid)

To help guide the project along the lines of sustainability and ethics circular design I have been on the hunt for recycled/eco filaments. Ultimately I would like to find a reclaim company that can take my waste prototype material and offer maybe a discount towards future material, etc. This is hard to find as often companies will use their own waste to ensure quality control. I think the idea of a fabrication lab would be excellent but this but isn’t easy to find.

Anyway the search for a more sustainable work ethic will continue. Below are some links to some of my initial findings.
