Shorts, the perfect way of Upcycling. The concept and goal of Upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones.
"Recycling is great but it requires energy and resources to collect, sort and process unwanted items and waste.
Upcycling is an even greener way of recycling – you find a new purpose for your unwanted items before you chuck them away..."
