"Upcycling" is reusing (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original. Basically, people create new products out of things that were garbage at someone's home or business.
Chetwynd has made this practice of reuse into an event, Upcycle Alley. Tomorrow, Saturday, May 7th, the Chetwynd Library is hosting their annual garage sale and they have added this unique addition to their event.
They say that one man's junk is another man's treasure. There are many home upcycling projects that you may have put off because of lack of inspiration. Drop by the Chetwynd Library and let the creative juices inspire you. There is also the opportunity to pick up information on composting and natural gardening solutions from NEAT while you are there.
