Upcycling is the (savvy) process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

That eternal question… to toss or not to toss?.. Our answer: don’t toss—upcycle! It’s savvy and trendy. So if you hate throwing anything away, and appreciate an occasional DIY project—consider yourself on trend. Because upcycling is HUGE today.
