Upcycling and Innovation

Have you ever wondered why discarded items are labeled “trash”?

Many of us are constantly bombarded with single-use items that are deemed useless once their initial purpose has been served. This has led to ever-increasing waste production. But what if we began to see our trash as resources? TCI’s Upcycling and Innovation toolkit challenges participants to breathe new life to items that would otherwise end up in the landfill. This toolkit can be paired with TCI’s Waste Audit and conducted with waste items collected during the assessment. Download the toolkit and begin to re-imagine new possibilities for the life cycle of waste.
