About Up-cycle

Upcycling

Up-cycling is the creative reuse of discarded and unwanted products that have been thrown out resulting in new products of better quality and ecological value.

I grew up in a time when production of goods became easier and cheaper, it was therefore easier to throw away stuff and buy new ones. I worked as a technician in many different industries and saw change the quality and form of industrial products over the years and recede. Meanwhile, there is a shortage of skilled craftsmanship and technical personnel. We repair or share nothing but buy everything new. Quality comes at the expense of the quantity and amount of waste increases. Because of this I became aware that the consumer in its present form is against me. (Up-cycle.nl founder Ronald Mossou.)
