Hipcycle - Upcycled Housewares
Hipcycle offers a large variety of upcycled housewares like home decor, floor mats, furniture, bird feeders, gift items, and jewelry. Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products. It is even better than recycling because less processing takes place. The materials used to make the products featured on Hipcycle are not purchased from stores or manufacturers. Rather, everything is made from items that would otherwise have ended up in the trash. Their suppliers, who are mostly small businesses that specialize in making handcrafting upcycled products out of reclaimed items, scour their local dump for items to upcycle, removing garbage from the waste stream. Hipcycle offers only products that are attractive, durable, and competitive in price to mainstream products. Their website allows you to find items either by category or by the kind of trash they are made out of.
