Upcycle ...dreaming it out of the waste stream
Athens, GA 30601
Upcyling is distinct from recycling in that no energy is expended returning materials to a raw form to be used in the production of new objects; existing waste items are rescued from the waste stream to be find new life as marketable products or fine art objects through creative re-use. Upcyling focuses on finding use for production waste that cannot be recycled easily or at all, such as used styrofoam serving containerds, ziplock bags, soda straws, bottle caps, milk & juice containers pop-tabs and caps, toothpaste caps and tubes, plastic cutlery, mesh produce bags, video & audiotape. By saving them from a destiny as landfill fodder we help reduce methane and land use and the worst case, pollution of the enviornment resulting in the death of ocean life and sea birds among others.
