Protoprint will produce filament from garbage in partnership with Indian waste pickers cooperatives

Protoprint is a social enterprise based in India that empowers waste pickers with the technology to produce 3D printer filament from waste plastic. They set up their waste plastic processing and filament extruder near waste sites and work in partnership with waste pickers cooperatives to establish the supply chain and provide more earnings for waste pickers.

Protoprint also sells 3d printers and wants to establish community 3d printing centers. 
Very interesting story, I hope we will here from it more in the future.
