Is upcycling better than recycling?



  1. 0 Votes

    Upcycling is a term coined for a type of recycling where the material that is being reprocessed retains or improves in quality. In theory, this process would be better then recycling because the material can be reused over and over again ad infinitum. In reality upcycling is not possible with many of the materials we use today. The term has been broadened include making new objects out of waste material, such as arts and crafts. This type of upcycling, I actually would call reuse. By either name it is better then recycling because no energy (other then your own labor) is expended in giving the material new life.
