What is Upcycling?
Upcycling is converting waste materials to something of better quality and environmental value.
Upcycling represents a variety of processes by which “old” products get to be modified and get a second life as they’re turned into a “new” product. This way, thanks to the mix and aggregation of used materials, components and items, the result is a “new product” with more value than the original sum of all its parts. In other words, upcycling is about materials or items that get to be re-adapted and re-purposed creatively and whose lifespan is, therefore, expanded.
If we look at upcycling from a significant scale perspective, we can say that, in theory, it contributes to reducing CO2 emissions. Not only because the lifetimes of the materials used are extended but also because, in view, it contributes ultimately to reducing carbon emissions by extending the lifetimes of used materials, components and products and spending less energy in extracting, transforming, new ones or recycling.
At The Ecofairy, our goal is to help you build a more sustainable life by offering you a line of reusable products. We offer you products that last and that will help you reduce the amount of plastic you use.More info on our website: https://www.theecofairy.com
