Extreme Upcycling

It is a bird, it is a plane, it is a house made out of upcycling dispensed jet parts.

Upcycling is the process of converting useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.

Recycling involves processing used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production.

I try to upcycle as much as I can. Recyling is good and upcycling is better.

Happy Upcycling Everyone!
