Info

WHAT will be done

Description:

In this project, the items that lost their functionality, started to be seen as redundancy, and were seen as waste were brought to life by making them useful thanks to creativity. The main idea in recycling is to ensure that the wastes are reused as raw materials. In this project (up-cycle), a new functionality and visuality has been gained by making changes on the material (waste) in its current state. It aims to encourage the reuse of the material defined as waste. In this way, the amount of waste going to landfills will also be reduced. The production of new materials requires the use of significant natural resources, including water and energy. With the upcycling of existing materials, the service life is extended. In this way, the need to purchase is delayed or eliminated. Thus, natural resources are also preserved.
