3form announces 'Reform' initiative to provide reduced rate sustainable materials

Sustainable building materials manufacturer 3form has embarked upon a new initiative which it hopes will take the company one step closer to becoming a zero-waste manufacturer. Reform will enable customers to access second-quality materials at a much reduced price, providing newly available materials to those on a budget.

Michael Johnson, Director of Sustainability at 3form, explains: “Reform materials might be untrimmed, oddly sized, have blemishes, or have other defects - kind of like diamonds in the rough. Through this program, we hope to significantly increase our recycling rate while filling a creative demand.”

The new initiative joins 3form’s existing Reclaim programme, providing first-quality sustainable building materials and architectural hardware solutions. This may include materials from cancelled orders or items returned from installations.

More information about the Reclaim programme can be found here.
