What Is Upcycling?
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 well used and loved items to give them a new story and personality.
All this while at the same time creating something that is useful, functional and beautiful.
Recycling Vs Upcycling
Recycling is the process of taking waste, generally consumer materials – plastic, paper, metal or glass – breaking it down and turning it into a reusable product. Upcycling involves turning an unwanted product into a better quality product.
The big idea is that items made from recycled materials can be even more desirable than the original products, which can only be a good thing for sustainable production with environmental consciousness.
The Benefits Of Upcycling
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!
The benefits of upcycling for both the designer and the customer are equally as impressive. This innovative method of material sourcing and production has formed an entirely new and thriving industry. This shift back to handmade artisanal craftsmanship is a breath of fresh air (no pun intended) after years of mass production across all major consumer industries.
