Step 5: Upcycling Vs. Recycling

Picture of Upcycling Vs. Recycling

Recycling and Upcycling are both great ways to get rid of waste. For recycling we are taught about the three R's; Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reducing is the process of just putting out less waste. An example is, companies using less plastic when wrapping their products. Reusing is finding a new use for a product that is supposedly trash or using something more then once. An example of reuse is using washable cups or travel mugs instead of disposable cups. Recycling is converting waste in to reusable products. An example of this is recycling used paper into new paper. Upcycling is reusing materials in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. The difference between Upcycling and recycling is the fact that recycled material is generally degraded or broken down to use for making a new product, while Upcycling uses the products in there as is form to create new pliable products.
