WHAT IS UPCYCLING?
If you're not up on the green lingo, the best way to think of upcycling is that it's like a sexier, even greener version of recycling. Upcycling adds value by transforming or reinventing an otherwise-disposable item into something of higher quality. It's the ultimate in reuse--and we believe a whole new industry sector is shaping up around it. Old Jeans are turned into reusable shopping bags, pallets turned into urban chic furniture and plastic bottles into Geodesic Sphere Chandeliers.
UPcyclePOP is a multi layered connected shopping experience. A play place for all ages to find creative upcycled pieces of art, fashion, furniture and inventions. Shoppers get to meet and watch artists create.
