General information

Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of creating a new product from a used item. Unlike recycling where a product is broken down and used again, upcycling is repurposing the product from its original state into a new usable item. The process is ecofriendly and often creates an item of greater value and usefulness. Purchasing upcycled products helps in the renewal of our environment by minimizing waste and contributing to a more sustainable world. Upcycling requires creativity and vision, as well as of thriftiness and environmental consciousness. The end result is typically handmade, sustainable and one–of-a-kind product.
