As anyone who’s been on Pinterest lately can tell you, upcycling is all the rage right now and for good reason. In fact, we firmly believe upcycling might just be one of the best trends ever.

Why might upcycling be the best trend ever?

Well first, you have to understand what upcycling is. Upcycling is the process of reusing items in such a way as to create a product of higher quality than the original product. It’s like recycling with a twist.

Of course, recycling items in any way is awesome, but upcycling is especially great for a couple of reasons.

First, most of the items used in upcycling are items that we would not normally recycle. Think about it. What can you do with an old tube TV? So few people want them even charity organizations won’t take them. The only option is to take them to the dump or upcycle them into a fish tank!

Or think about old furniture. Most of the furniture we throw away has cosmetic damage, but is still functional. Upcycling fixes that cosmetic damage, allowing us to get years more use out of an item. Not only is this good for the environment, but it‘ll save you money in the long run!

Second of all, let’s be honest – a lot of products simply aren’t made as well as they use to be. Upcycling a vintage product gives you the best of both worlds. You get the high quality of eras gone as well as a modern, trendy looking item. And again, you’ll save money.

Also, upcycling has spawned thousands of small businesses who sell only upcycled items. These trendy little boutiques have made buying used cool, but more importantly, they also help to support local economies and provide a unique personality to cities.

So upcycling allows you to save the environment, save money, support local business and get unique, quality items?

See why we think it’s the best trend ever?
