Do you ever feel a need to get rid of clothes to make space for more? Well, I am definitely guilty of this but by upcycling I make money to do this while thinking about the environment!
”The best things in life are old, loved and rescued”
Upcycling it means to transform materials into new products that are more useful, yes this can be done through recycling but another way is by selling it passing on your old items of clothes. With people around the world consuming 80 billion items of clothes each year, we definitely need to make sure we know what to do with our old clothes.
The Benefits of Upcycling:
Now, let’s talk about te benefits of upcycling! One of the biggest reasons to Upcycle had to be to conserve the environment, by upcycling you are reducing the amount of waste that is dumped in landfills. Landfills song just destroy the lives of animals and their habitats, they can also be very harmful for humans due to some materials containing dangerous chemicals which can enter our water source and lead to water pollution! Global warming is continuing to increase as well with climate change worsening each day and landfills add to this. So, by upcycling you are helping to save the Planet.
How to make money by upcycling:
