The benefits of upcycling include resource conservation, less carbon footprints, saving energy, and saving landfill space. When you buy an upcycled product made from discarded materials, you directly offset the water and energy needed to make new materials from scratch to produce the same product. And in the process, you are helping to conserve resources.
