The new motto for Global Recycling Day: “upcycle, reduce and recycle”

Before getting into upcycling, let’s get one thing straight: upcycling is not just reusing old stuff. It’s not recycling. It’s reimagining your belongings to create something even better, like new furniture from old floors or tables from water pipes. It’s taking things we take for granted and transforming them into something unique, functional, and beautiful.
