“There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”
– Annie Leonard, Proponent of Sustainability
One popular nature-saving hobby and lifestyle that is rapidly entering our life is upcycling — the creative way to make a completely new and unique item from the existing one in just a few steps! Upcycling is to create a product of higher quality or value than the original one.
Many youngsters as well as adults have taken up upcycling as a hobby using a variety of processes by which they modify their old products — giving a second life to them. These old products are thus turned into “new” ones.
If recycling involves the destruction of waste in order to create something new, upcycling takes waste and creates something new from it in its current state.
