Upcycling for recycling

Also this weekend, I completed my crocheted recycling basket. I stole the idea for this off my sister as a great way to use up the hundreds of plastic shopping bags that we’ve accumulated over several months of Sainsbury’s deliveries. I guess this is my attempt at ‘upcycling’.

Upcycling: The process of converting an industrial nutrient (material) into something of similar or greater value, in its second life (Sustainability Dictionary).
