Upcycle, Re-use, Re-puposed Powered by Satthvam

With the increase in curiosity on what the 'Upcycle workshop' will be? Not many are aware of this term called upcycle, in fact when you wan to type it in text or message it does not appear in auto correction dictionary too. So we thought of sharing a beautiful article on Upcycling , highlighting the difference between Recycle and Upcycle. Ladies who are attending the 'Chit-chat, Chai and more', please read the below linked article and get geared up for the upcycle workshop. Upcycle is also known as 'Re-purposed'. The event, the 'Chit-chat, Chai and more' is hosted by Momz'Space in association with ArtBlendCafe.

We take immense pleasure to announce that our upcoming event, "Women's Special> Chit-chat, chai and more', is supported by urday, Vidya Ramurthy, founder of passion driven initiative Satthvam. 
We are glad to be associated with and supported by passion driven Eco-freindly start-up 'Satthvam'. Vidya will also share few home-hacks and tips and trick for upcycling the trash products.

Over the last decade the term “Upcycling” has been coined and worked into the discourse of sustainability efforts. It appeared in William McDonough’s book, Cradle to Cradle. It has yet to earn itself mainstream popularity, but its necessity as a goal for how we should be progressing makes its definition important.
Like so many things in sustainability, I come across many enthusiasts who are trying to promote the practice but may be passing around an incorrect meaning.

We all know what the basis of Recycling is: a practice that takes an item and targets it for reuse, returning it back to the cycle of daily contribution to society rather than discarding it to trash.

Upcycling is described by some as reusing a material without degrading the quality and composition of the material for its next use. When plastic bottles are recycled, for instance, most often they cannot be turned back into containers associated with anything that can be ingested due to the risk of things seeping into the plastic. As a result, these usually become carpets, or toys, or winter fleeces: things that will eventually also become trash. Read more>>
