Innovative And Eco-friendly Upcycled Decor

Quirky upcycled decor that decorate your home while doing their bit to help the environment.

The term upcycling was coined in 1994 by Reiner Pilz. It means doing things with old products and adding value to them. Upcycling is similar to recycling in that it helps create less garbage, thus minimizing environmental impact, yet it differs in that it involves giving something old a new use.

Upcycling helps lessen the amount of waste going into landfills. You are cordially invited to see how some of our ethically and environmentally conscious and skilled makers go about doing this.
