Upcycling Fun and Fundraising


We can recycle and we can UPCYCLE, take rubbish and turn it into something new, useful or beautiful or just fun.

You could get your friends together and have an upcycling day to make gifts to sell at your school fair to raise money for your favourite cause – double the benefit and fun!

We love these projects!
