Upcycling is not a new concept. In fact, the years from 1920 thru the 1950's were called the "Age of Thrift" as it was common for families to reuse almost everything! The old became new again, but with a twist.
Thrift is still a trend today which inspires people to upcycle.
Upcycling positively impacts the environment. Items destined for the dump are rescued and remade into something useful, memorable and inspirational.
One of the important reasons ReTwist-T promotes upcycling, and repurposing, is we enjoy the artistic aesthetic and camaraderie we experience as we problem solve how to re-create things. Being creative can be very healing, both mentally and physically.
