Upcycling in the Classroom




In my search for penny saving ideas I came across the term ‘upcycling’.  It sounds a lot like recycling to me, but, it is a bit more than that. Upcycling is taking waste and making it into something that has equal or greater use or value.

According to William McDonough in his book, Cradle to Cradle, upcycling is reusing a material without degrading the quality and composition of the material for its next use. As a matter of fact, the finished product can be worth more than the recycled material it is made of. So when next you decide to throw away your soda bottle or sausage tins, think of making something that is far more valuable with it. Check these out!
