Upcycling means creative re-use. It is a special recycling process that aims not only to reuse waste but to treat waste products in new, higher-quality products.

Upcycling stands out as a process for its sustainable innovation by using materials in its original form,saving resources and money, thus increasing the quality of the product.

 

The goal of Upcycling is to avoid wasting potentially useful materials by using existing ones.

 

This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products.

Reducing the use of new raw materials can lead to a reduction in energy use, air pollution, water pollution, and even greenhouse gases emissions.Upcycling is the opposite of downcycling, which is the other half of recycling.

Downcycling involves the conversion of materials and products into new materials of lower quality while recycling involves the conversion or extraction of useful materials from an original powder product by creating a different product or material from the beginning.

Upcycling In Fashion:

The production process of the textile industry is complex

and needs huge amounts of energy, water,

polluting chemicals, among other resources.

 

It’s very polluting to the environment and its supply chain often isn’t an ethical one.

Therefore, upcycling comes as a nice solution that’s starting to be developed not only

by small artisans but also starting

to boom in companies like Patagonia (though more in a re-crafting concept).

Damaged clothes no longer fit for wearing are “disassembled”

and their textiles get reused

for the creation of some other piece of clothing or as cases,

bookmarks, or wherever the designer’s creativity takes them.

 

We use tubes and abandoned tires or collectible tires to create our unique

Comfy pieces of bags backpacks or accessories.

Is Upcycling Eco-Friendly? The Ecological Value Of Upcycling

If we look at upcycling from a large, scale perspective, we can say that in theory, it contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

Not only because the lifetimes of the materials used are extended, but also because there’s, in theory, contributes ultimately to reducing carbon

emissions by extending lifetimes of used materials, components and products, and spending less energy in extracting,

transforming, new ones or recycling.

Benefits of Upcycling

1.Conserves the environment

Upcycling reduces the amount of waste that is dumped in the landfills. Some waste materials contain dangerous chemicals, which can cause soil degradation. If these chemicals find their way to water bodies, they cause water pollution. A landfill that is full of waste is definitely an eyesore.

Apart from land and water pollution, solid waste can also cause air pollution. During the process of decomposition, a foul smell may begin to emanate from the solid waste. While burning may seem to be the best alternative for managing waste, it may end up causing further pollution as some gases produced during combustion end up causing air pollution. Upcycling provides an environment-friendly alternative of dealing with such waste.

  2. Conserves the limited resources

To put it into a proper perspective, imagine the value of wood that is going to waste when you decide to dump your furniture. This does not only apply to wood only but also to other precious items whose supply can diminish. Upcycle eliminates the need to use fresh raw materials to manufacture new products.

  3. Reduce the cost of production

As a business, upcycling can help you to minimise the cost of production. Let’s assume that you run a furniture workshop. One of the most expensive factors of production that you need is wood. Do you know that you can still build some items using wood pellets? This is what upcycling is all about-turning waste into something meaningful.

Through upcycling, the cost of production can be drastically reduced. The reduction of production cost automatically optimises the profit margins.

  4. Supporting local industries

Upcycling helps to support local businesses and industries. Some entrepreneurs depend on waste to come up with eccentric products.

By using this method of waste management, you will be making some contributions towards the survival and growth of such businesses.

  5. Encourages creativity and innovation

Have you ever asked yourself why products from upcycling are always unique and stylish? It takes a lot of creativity to come up with a meaningful item from the waste.

This method of waste management encourages all the stakeholders to be creative and also innovative.

Here are 6 upcycling projects that you can try at home with your friends and family.

Cotton is the most commonly used fabric on earth, accounting for over half of the world’s fiber needs. I bet you’re wearing something made of cotton as you read this. But did you know that when it comes to organic cotton vs cotton made the conventional way, there are stark differences between the two?

There’s a reason for using organic cotton in our fabric blends here at WAMA. While priding ourselves on using plenty of hemps, one of the world’s most sustainable fabrics, organic cotton is an important element in our uber-soft and durable underwear. So when you’re wearing our men’s boxer briefs or women’s thongs, you can be confident that you’re taking care of both yourself and the environment.

Organic cotton plays an important role in our super durable and extremely comfortable organic underwear styles.

It lends a softness and breathability that only improves everything that hemp fiber brings to the table. So why use organic cotton vs regular cotton? Let’s break down the difference between the two.

It’s pretty simple: organic cotton is grown organically, meaning the cotton plants are not genetically modified, and no harmful pesticides or fertilizers are used in the process.

What is organic cotton good for? Well, it can be used for anything from clothing and coffee filters to bedding and curtains. Basically, you can use organic cotton instead of regular cotton in just about any instance.

In the comparison of organic cotton vs conventional cotton, organic cotton is better for you and I (and the environment!) for a few big reasons. Keep reading to learn the shocking truth about regular cotton, and what sets organic cotton apart.
