UPcyclity is an e-commerce market place and community that seeks to promote and teach Upcycling as an environmental lifestyle where three-dimensional products are created from one-dimensional waste. The definition of Upcycling is Òthe repurposing of discarded or used materials into new products with a higher valueÓ.

Our mission is an explicit commitment to Upcycling as a sustainable solution that helps people reduce their waste stream and environmental impact. B Corp certification along with our Upcycity certification makes us more transparent to all our stakeholders and helps to further align our core values. As a Benefit Corporation, it was important to us to belong to a global movement like the B Corp community where its members are committed to making a social impact and help build a sustainable world for the future of all mankind.

As a Benefit Corporation, UpcyclityÕs business strategy is founded on the SEER model, pioneered by ex-Patagonia CEO Michael Crooke of sustainable business through four perspectives:Quality of Product/ServiceSocial ResponsibilityEnvironmental StewardshipFinancial Performance.
