UPCYCLING - the new Trend protecting the Earth

UPCYCLING  - the new Trend protecting the Earth

Almost all of us has heard of the term "Recycling."  But what about the term "Upcycling?"  With this innovative eco-friendly concept, we turn someone trash into another person's treasure.  Upcycling - also known as creative reuse -  is the process of transforming waste materials, useless and/or unwanted products into fresh, new materials or products of better quality and/or better  value.  In the photos above by Recman Brasil, for example, old inner tubes (of tires) or fire hoses are upcycled into stylish and durable (vegan) handbags, wallets or belts.
