Eco Summer

We hope all of our Upcyclers are having an awesome summer! It’s been a busy one for us at Upcycle That. In July we launched the Eco Summer promotion at the WTC More mall in Hong Kong. Summertime is hot and it’s important to stay hydrated. What do you do with your empty plastic bottles? You could recycle them, or you could upcycle them into massive sculptures! For Eco Summer we created 2 giant plastic bottle sculptures: a 6 foot tall tennis racket and a 2 meter wide shoe!

Rupert Blanchard

Every now and then we come across a upcycler that simply blows us away. Say hello to Rupert Blanchard of Margate UK. Rupert Blanchard is a designer, maker and collector. He moved to London in 1999 to do a graphic design course at St. Martins and quickly discovered that the streets were paved “not with gold, but with rubbish”. Rupert Blanchard started salvaging finds and upcycling them into gorgeous, industrial-style furniture.

All Things Coffee

This upcycled Kickstarter is all things coffee and all things awesome! If you love coffee then you will love this idea. Brandon and Hannah Weidman are Americans living in Masatepe, Nicaragua. Two years ago they started a small coffee shop there. In the process, they discovered a hidden gem for upcycling, coffee sacks.
