Anyone can be a father but it takes a special person to be a Dad. Knowing it is impossible to indefinitely run a linear system on a finite planet, we are doing something about it by bringing circular economy principles to grow our local creative economy. UPcyclePOP is America’s first upcycle market. Remake, play, shop, eat and get creative.
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.
