We talk a lot about the importance of upcycling, but have you ever wonder what upcycling is?
Upcycling is the process of taking an existing item or material that is no longer used, and transforming it into a product of higher value or quality.
It involves repurposing or reusing discarded or obsolete items to create something new and useful, often with a creative or artistic flair.
Upcycling helps to reduce waste, save resources, and promote sustainability by giving new life to items that might otherwise go to landfill.
It’s an important part of a circular economy because it helps extend the life cycle of products, reduces waste, conserves resources, and lessens the need for new products to be made.
Upcycling and reuse supports a closed-loop system where waste is minimized and resources are conserved.
At Reviva Reuse Shops we love upcycling so much we have plenty of upcycle examples to help inspire your upcycle and reuse creativity.
