Archived: UpcyclePost.com: The Up App enables households to share used goods with Upcycle Artisans who are seeking raw materials for their next upcycled product

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 1, 2015





UpcyclePost is a privately owned Issaquah, WA-based company that provides a collaborative community for artisans and consumers of products made from recycled materials. The company is committed to becoming the focal point on the Internet for all things upcycled and is moving rapidly down a path that will lead to a feature-rich collaborative community that caters to artisans who manufacture products from recycled materials, and to consumers who want to add their own content to an inspiring site promoting sustainability. The UpcyclePost gallery features over a thousand images of products including artwork, jewelry, fashion, furniture and toys that have been manufactured using recycled materials, saving thousands of tons of waste going to overcrowded landfills, and creating value for consumers where previously none existed. The gallery is the first module to be launched by the company and will be followed in the weeks and months ahead by a mobile application, a marketplace storefront capability and rich social media interactivity. This mix of capabilities does not currently exist in any other site related to the upcycling segment.
