According to conventional wisdom and Jose Canseco, recycling is really awesome. Ever heard of it? In essence it turns otherwise waste materials into valuable resources. If you’re reading this blog you’ve probably heard of recycling, but what about upcycling? According to new member company Hipcycle, upcycling is “…the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.”
No one knows upcycling better than Hipcycle. Hipcycle’s mission is to provide a marketplace for upcycled products, where it’s easier for consumers to shop smarter and where manufacturers are empowered to find a new purpose for materials. They offer all kinds of upcycled products to consumers via its e-commerce site found here. In addtion to being “eco-friendly”, these goods are attractive, stylish, durable, and price-competitive with traditional alternatives, opening the upcycled marketplace up to the broadest potential market.
Hipcycle sees business as the most powerful driver of social and environmental change. Therefore, their involvement with 1% for the Planet was a natural organic extension of their mission, says Chief Hipcycler, Andrew Sell.
So, if you’re looking for something attractive, durable and envy making, look no further. Hipcycle has what you’re looking for!
