The term upcycling is also known as “creative reuse”. By reusing plastic, upcycling helps reduce the amount of plastic that can end up in the environment and may help us avoid purchasing new plastic products. The more we can refuse single-use plastic and reuse what is already out there, the more sustainable our future will be. Together we can prevent plastic pollution!
