Today is Earth Day and just like events like Earth Hour, it is an important reminder to take care of our planet that sustains life.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) constantly reminds us to “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” as a means to protect our environment on a daily basis. “Reuse” can also be known as upcycle.
Many of you may already know the saying of, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” which is the whole idea behind upcylcing.
Upcyling is where you take things that could be considered trash and repurpose them to be of use for something or someone else.
Kuttlefish has taken the idea of upcylcing to a new and artistic level.
Kuttlefish provides a platform where various artisans may sell and showcase products they have produced from recycled content and for buyers to have a selection of eco-friendly products to purchase.
Apart from the marketplace, Kuttlefish also has an idea sharing page where people from all over the world can share their upcycling ideas and inspire others to produce their own reuse projects.
I follow their Instagram (@kuttlefish) and I find many gorgeous ideas to repurpose products I never dreamed of before; all while reducing waste for our planet.
You are highly appreciated!!
You remind us everyday of how essential our planet is by highlighting its beauty that is one-of-a-kind!
Happy Earth Day everyone! Remember to protect the environment that has a sole purpose to give life.
Have you ever upcylced anything?
