Why UpCycling

The growing concern and issues of global warming, sustainability and waste. We have been over consuming the earth resources. This is an initiative of saving our earth from waste for us and our future generation to live in a better Earth with better living. We must reduce waste in every possible effort, we must reuse them as much as we can and we must recycle these resources. The most important is start doing now, even it is a tiny effort and if everyone put in a tiny effort, it will be a mass effort.
