About Upcycle That

Upcycle That is a site dedicated to all things Upcycling. It was founded by Jacques Karsten and Judy Rom on Earth Day 2012. Upcycle That is a resource for people interested in reusing items in innovative ways.

On Upcycling

Upcycling is a new term for repurposing. Upcycling is the act of taking something no longer in use and giving it a second life and new function. In doing so, the finished product often becomes more practical, valuable and beautiful than what it previously was.

Upcycle That provides upcycling ideas, inspiration and tutorials. By showcasing discarded items as a resource, we aim to inspire people to creatively repurpose and reuse what they already have.

Some of our favourite upcycles include:

cork planters

    I would like to know things like:
    when was the blog started? Why and by whom?
    Where/how did you all learn about “upcycling”?
    From what countries or parts of the world do most of your featured stories come from?
    What seem to be the most popular “mainstream” kind of upcycle ideas?
    :)
    That’s all I’ll post for now.
    Thanks!
