Its the same kind of question as â€œWhat is art?â€. It’s all how you look at it. Garbage Upcycling Design uses materials from personal and corporate donations and repurposes them into modern design pieces. Everything from street signs to binders is used, creating completely unique pieces while extending the life cycle of each product.
Garbage Upcycling Design does more than find new uses for â€œgarbageâ€ though, it actually helps people find new kinds of work. Garbage’s staff includes twenty people, some welfare recipients and others adolescents who have recently completed drug therapy. They benefit from the creative experience, while participating in an occupational training program developed specifically for Garbage Upcycling Design. See more here.
