Do you know what it means to upcycle? To put it simply, it’s taking old or classic items and converting them to something new for continued use. It happens every day in our households, in our workplaces, in our schools and life in general. People are constantly looking for ways to repurpose items rather than throw them away. There are many instances of upcycling, it happens often in our daily lives! Take music for example: I know right now that on the radio I’ve heard a classic Bob Marley song ‘Could You Be Loved’ upcycled using new beats, sounds and rhythms.
Some of the best and easiest examples of upcycling are with food. In our house, I take classic macaroni and cheese and transform it into my childrens’ favorite meal just by adding a few extra ingredients: tuna, mayo, cream of mushroom soup and shredded cheese – Voila Tuna Casserole!
I’ve also repurposed an item to use at work – that counts too right? hahaha
