Upcycling isn’t just the practice of transforming old materials into useable objects, it’s the process of breathing a new lease of life into used items you’d otherwise throw out to give them a new story and personality. All the while creating something that is useful, functional and beautiful.
This seemingly basic concept has sparked an exciting trend in recent times, and it’s something that anyone can join in with!
The environmental benefits of upcycling are enormous. It doesn’t just help curb the shocking volume of discarded materials and waste finding its way into landfills each year, it also reduces the demand for the use of new or raw materials in production. A lower demand for these materials means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions, helping us conserve our precious global resources. Not bad!
