Do you remember the old saying 'One man's trash is another man's treasure'? Wise words, we think. You may have heard the word 'Upcycling' before - it's the rather new-fangled term for an old school idea and it ain't just for hippies anymore (but we started it). Upcycling, sometimes called "creative reuse" is essentially the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, discarded or unwanted items into new materials or products of better quality or with a higher environmental value.
Now that recycling, re-use, re-purposing and DIY are being embraced by a whole new generation, Upcycling has turned into a movement and it's gaining more attention every day. People are looking for ways to incorporate it into more aspects of their lives, their livelihoods and their art, with good reason; not only is it good for the environment, it's good for your bank account - whether you're saving money by Upcycling unwanted goods in your closet or garage instead of buying something new, or earning money with your incredible Upcycled creations. We have a ton of products to help you in your Upcycling endeavors. Transform and reinvigorate old clothes, home decor, shoes, purses, accessories and more. We've got stuff to help you turn that trash back into treasure!
