They heat plastic up to stamp it over model of printed teeth.  I've been told that type of plastic isn't recyclable once heated.  Pretty much everything is trash there and nothing is recycled.  Those printed models of teeth end up in trash too.  Only thing not sent to trash is the end product of clear braces.

Gotta get that plastic-eating bacteria on it pronto.

Yea didn't mean to be Debbie Downer in positive thread but humans need to find solutions to it because plastic is everywhere now.  There has been talk of the bacteria and apparently fungus but I'm not sure how much progress has been made.  Bio degradable material that has similar properties to plastics would be nice also. 

Now that would be positive news if there were more breakthroughs in waste management.
