Upcycling

Too Good To Waste

What would you like to reduce, reuse, repair or recycle?

Upcycling

This is the process of turning unwanted items into products of greater value. It differs from recycling, where the final product is of the same or less value than the original item.

The following local organisations offer opportunities/workshops to upcycle various materials:

Alchemy Arts: T: 07853 872 073, W: www.alchemyarts.org

Greenworks: T: 0845 838 2440, W: www.greenworksatgrahamstreet.blogspot.com/

Waste Innovations: T: 0131 661 6615, W: www.wasteinnovations.com


There are upcycled items for sale, and also a 'handmade blog' with lots of upcycling tips, on the Etsy website:
