Like recycling, upcycling is a kind of waste prevention – but in a very creative way.

WE UPCYCLE is a blog by Lisa Schultz and Magdalena Akantisz, two students from the University of applied arts in Vienna, on which they posted 30 things they created out of waste materials for 30 days in a row. For everyone who collaborates and sends them their project, the blog will be extended for one day.

Find out what useful and fascinating products you can create out of discarded material here – so be creative and start your own upcycling project: Find trash, be creative and post your masterpieces – the most charming way to save our resources.
