Welcome to

    Better Frame

    Better Frame is the first closed-loop circular economy recycled picture frame made in the US from Foam Packaging waste (aka Styrofoam)


    Better Frame helps preserve the Earth's resources by using a recyclable material that would otherwise wind up in our landfills and waterways


    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, so if your frame is even broken or no longer needed, you can simply send your frame back to us to be recycled. Recycling frames will help keep this one time waste material out of the waste stream for good!


    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. We can do better for our environment and working with Foam Cycle, the patent-pending Foam Packaging waste recycling system we believe:

    " Foam Recycling helps put Earth in a Better Frame"

    Picture Frames made from waste plastic and NOT from tree's, what else can we call it but Better Frame

  • In collaboration with Foam Cycle and The Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority, Better Frame is a closed loop recycled product that was developed in the summer of 2019 with help from a group of exceptional students from Montclair State University's

    "Green Team".

  • In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone on our planet.
