Hack the Planet! Or is it Save the Planet? Refil offers a line of recycled filaments made from plastic bottles. Because the source of these bottles can vary, so can the color. I like the hint of green instead of the full on transparent green. But thats me. For a recycled filament, the print quality is outstanding. Unfortunately the clear filament is difficult to photograph. Refil sells filament in 750g size on a cardboard spool.
