Recycling or Upcycling?


Listen here

We all know what recycling means.

For example scrap paper can be recycled and then re-used for the production of new paper, thereby saving trees.

But have you heard about upcycling?

Upcycling is the creative re-working of used waste or unwanted items into new materials or useful products.

So both recycling or upcycling help the environment.


scrap paper: paper that has already been used.
