Upcycling: Gas Can Turned Luggage

Recycling, downcycling, upcycling…I can’t keep up. Apparently, upcycling is one of the newest trends to take a hold of the category popularly known as the “green” space.

“Hey, great lap top bag.” “Yeh, thanks. It was actually upcycled from a wet suit.” If that’s not a great ice breaker, I don’t know what is…
