Over 500 million tons of construction debris is generated in the US annually. If we can divert even a small percentage of waste from going into overflowing landfills, and use it to make « cool stuff », why not? Formr creates relationships with contractors to get access to job sites. Then they sort through the debris and bring back the best materials to their shop. After removing nails and other hardware, they clean the material and begin fabrication. It’s quite a process. « The good » doesn’t stop there. People released from incarceration need opportunities. Many companies choose not to hire formerly incarcerated individuals, but Formr believes in giving people hope for a successful fresh start and a second chance. They create clever designs, with a purpose: Objects. With Conviction.
