Converting something that was discarded into something completely different (and better)
Taking something and making it into a reusable, most likely similar, product
Retrieving old wood (like from a barn) and making it into a better product
Very simply, upcycling is good for the environment. When you support upcycled products instead of mass produced, you support keeping itms from going into the landfills, reducing energy to produce and recycle items, and reducing the demand for items to be manufactured.
