Implications - Environmentally conscious consumers love upcycled products, especially when the end result is a clever, stylish and intriguing creation that brightens up their life. Products like this have the dual advantage of being charming and eco-conscious, but also of impressing consumers with their ingenuity and resourcefulness. The lucrative nature of this kind of customer impact is not to be underestimated.
