Upcycling, or creative repurposing, is the process of transforming used and discarded materials into products or projects for better environmental use and better quality.
By upcycling, you prevent wasting potentially useful materials, therefore reducing the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions. The major environmental impact of glass production is the atmospheric emissions from melting activities. The combustion of natural gas or fuel oil, and the decomposition of raw materials during the melting, lead to the emission of carbon dioxide.
Glass bottles are already a brilliantly constructed work of art. Both their smooth, oblong shape, and array of colors make them a prime candidate for upcycling in your own home. When they go in the recycling bin, or often the trash, it is common for them to shatter and become useless for anything other than being melted down. It’s a shame to let such a beautiful sculpture go to waste! Imagine the possibilities of using beautiful blue hues of glass, or serene greens to create a privacy wall, outdoor shower, garden bed, or simple a lantern to hang a candle.
Check out these immensely creative and extraordinay applications of glass upcycling. Some are more complex and require a bit more knowledge of construction, and some that can be simply constructed in a weekend!

Trees are a vital ingredient for supporting life on our planet. They are crucial to our environment as humans, producing oxygen and absorbing climate change-causing carbon dioxide. People cut down 15 billion trees each year, excluding the undocumented millions illegally logged, and the global tree count has fallen by 46% since the beginning of human civilization.
Logging is the greatest determinant of whether trees will survive in a given area. The most dramatic losses to forests are in tropical regions where land is being cleared for agriculture and other commercial purposes. Logging involves the cutting and processing of trees to produce timber and pulp to supply the world’s markets for furniture, construction, paper, and other products. If not managed properly, logging greatly contributes to deforestation and forest degradation. Habitat loss is one of the biggest threats to biodiversity, especially in tropical rainforests where over half of all of the planet’s documented flora and fauna are found. Logging also directly impacts soil and hydrological cycles, as reducing in tree coverage leads to the increase in water runoff and soil erosion.
It is imperative to our survival as a species to preserve our planet’s forests. A way to immensely impact the conservation of trees is to utilize reclaimed timber for the construction of your home, and your home improvement projects. The vast majority of repurposed wood comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses, though some use wood from structures such as pallets, boxcars, coal mines, and wine barrels.
Here are some amazing projects using pallets that we hope inspire you to utilize reclaimed wood for your future home projects!
A backyard is your private sanctuary, and depending on where your home is located, can be your only retreat to be immersed in natural elements. Your enclosed plot of earth is yours to grow and develop to your heart’s desire. Dedicating time and creative energy into your backyard will provide a space to nurture yourself in a peaceful environment. You will cultivate beauty that will inspire you to share it with others, and give you the desire to spend more time outdoors than indoors.
Landscaping projects however, can become quite expensive in no time, so sparking a drive to design and construct your own outdoor experience can be both exciting and essential! By using repurposed materials, you are both saving funds, and succeeding in moving away from a consumerist lifestyle.
