When you see how much impact a simple act of recycling 3D printer material carriers has, it's hard to resist doing good. Consider this:
- Recycling 10 Fortus filament canisters is the equivalent of removing a car from the road for one week.
- Recycling one Fortus or Dimension 3D printer filament cartridge can save the equivalent of 3 gallons of gasoline.
- Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator
But if you need further incentive, you might be glad to know you will be automatically entered into a contest to win a free iPad for returning your rapid prototyping or production material carriers. And this drawing occurs not just once, but quarterly. Every time you send back used cartridges for recycling, your name will be entered into the quarterly drawing. There are no forms to fill out - drawings will be done from the postage-paid labels used to return the materials. Just sending in the spent material spools, cartridges or canisters will automatically enter you to win the iPad. The winners will be announced in this blog.
Help make a significant impact on improving the environment.
