“Upcycling defines the process in which waste materials, useless and/or unwanted products are turned into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value. This method supports the long-term reducation of unnecessary waste.”
The focus of upcycling is rethinking and redesigning our daily resources in order to give it a higher value. Upcycling allows us to be creative and create individual pieces which support our environment.
