Upcycling is part of the conversation in modern Vancouver. Being a fine steward of the land is definitely a characteristic of the Vancouver community. How does a community that is already carrying the torch for sustainability, improve? Let’s talk about the Upcycling Movement happening in around the city. Some of our neighbors have found their niche, like Salvage Vancouver who is reclaiming Vancouver’s history one plank at a time.

Inside The Upcycle Movement

Upcycle Vancouver is a collaborative community project dedicated to building demand for reclaimed materials by breaking down the misconception surrounding their use o while portraying the power in upcycling. You too can join the #upcycling movement

Computer Parts Reuse

Vancouver recycling centers only break down electronics down into components. Free Geek can take it a step further by refurbishing computers and electronics and provide them at no cost to non-profits, schools, community groups, and their volunteers.
