Wooden Pallets Creative Upcycling

Wooden pallets are commonly used to move heavy objects, usually in construction. Once the job
is done, they are discarded — thrown away or burnt. With a little bit of creativity, however, the
pallets can be upcycled, offering a multitude of day-to-day nifty options to be used for interior
and garden design. 

Since upcycling is a relatively new term (1990), let me briefly explain the difference between it

and recycling.

Recycling, as we know, is processing used materials into new materials. Whatever we throw away
in our garbage from glass, metal, plastic, and paper is taken to recycling plants to be made
into reusable products. These products are normally of lower quality than what they were before
being recycled. The process is not really something the average man can do himself or at home.

Upcycling, on the other hand, is defined as the process by which waste materials or useless products

are converted into new materials or products of better quality and/or a higher environmental 
value. Unlike recycling, the material itself isn't broken down and it doesn't lose its quality in
; it may be reworked, reconstructed, or used differently. Though the essence of the 

material remains the same.
