    Better Frame

    Better Frame is the first closed-loop circular economy recycled picture frame made in the US from

    Foam Packaging waste (aka Styrofoam)


    We know the picture you are framing is important to you and now for the first time you can also feel the same way about your frame.

    If your frame is ever broken or no longer needed, you can simply send it back to us. Better Frame utilizes a one of a kind manufacturing process that allows us to regrind your frame and use the regrinds to make a new frame keeping this one time waste material out of our landfills for good!


    Picture Frames made from waste plastic and NOT from tree's

    at Better Frame we believe tree's belong in your picture

    and not around it.

    Better Frame was created!

    Better Frame will soon be offering our picture frames for sale on this web site and at partner framing shops. In the meantime, if you would like to know more about our recycling process, send us an email and we will be happy to get back to you with more information.

    The recycled foam needed to make a Better Frame starts with foam that is collected from a Foam Cycle recycling system. Foam Cycle is a patent-pending Foam Packaging
