People have always creatively re-used objects to make new objects. Upcycling is a new word for an old skill, and upcycle artists are now coming up with so many creative ways to re-use objects that might otherwise be thrown away. One of the vendors at Four Seasons suggested last fall that we host an Upcycle Fair to highlight some of these artists, so we organized our first Upcycle Fair last October, and we’re excited to host another Upcycle Event this Saturday. So much stuff these days is disposable, and only gets used once. We think it’s really important to give people the opportunity meet the vendors who make upcycled products as well as to get ideas of ways we can upcycle in our daily lives.
