What is Upcycling?

Upcycling is all about converting old or discarded material into something useful and often beautiful. It is about giving materials a better purpose of utility. Unlike recycling process, in upcycling the material does not undergo change in form. Upcycling is not a resource intensive process as the core material is not altered in form.

Why Upcycling?

Given today’s level of consumerism, use and throw lifestyle, we are depleting our scarce and limited resources at a pace that is not sustainable. Dumping of discarded products is creating havoc on our environment. Through Upcycling we extend the life of a material and reroute it from the garbage stream which otherwise ends up in landfills.
