Upcycled products may seem to be a new innovation, but they have been around for a long time—people use old bottles and broken things for creating lamps or other arts and crafts, broken jewellery to make new pieces and much more at Hipcycle. Hipcycle is a brand new website, dedicated exclusively to offering attractive, durable and affordable upcycled products, which means the raw material they use for their products, is something which would have otherwise ended up in another landfill. Also, not using new raw materials saves energy, and reduces air and water pollution.
There are four categories (currently over 400 items) to choose from at Hipcycle: housewares, furniture, garden and office. Customers can also shop by material from which the product is made up of. Each item in their catalogue is said to be unique because it is not mass made, each is upcycled.
