The Upcycling Project

It took a blend of creativity, innovation and a sense of social and environmental responsibility to launch 'The Upcycling Project'. Our objective is to create something new and purposeful out of waste material and by-products. It is as important to us to produce something environmentally considerate as it is to produce something of value to you - for your home, for your business. For our first product collection we are upcycling glass.

What is Upcycling?

Upcycling is a process of designing & producing new high quality & value products by using wasted material or by-products. This could be any waste material or product really - glass, metal, wood, plastic - you name it. Upcycling moves such resources back up the supply chain in an environmentally friendly way.

Why Upcycle?

The benefits of upcycling to society and the environment can be immense. It is a mindset - a conscious way of living and consuming by extending the lifespan of a product. Upcycling is a cyclical balanced process of production & consumption that all industries and companies should be moving towards.
