Re: UPDATE – RE: – Recycling Thermoplastics?

Dr. Steven King


As my wife tells my young daughters, “Find a solution to the problem.”

Perhaps we should do more research into using more biobased materials so we
can lessen the amount of plastic waste we force our planet to consume.

We will be testing earth friendly bio based flax composite orthotic and
footwear systems at NDSU this summer with a great grant from Ameriflax!

Regrettably I can’t post this with a smile.

It seems that those of us in the O&P industry all face the same problem when
it comes to recycling our plastics.

Not enough volume.

I had many folks reply and offer their own stories and they were always the
same. We just don’t stockpile enough for a recycling agency to come pick

So much like those that replied, we are going to continue what we’ve done
for years now. Throw it into the dumpster and focus on other ways to make
the Earth smile.

Thanks and sorry for the delay in posting a reply, slipped my mind.
