Upcycling is now a new trend in recycling and is now being picked up by sustainable communities just like in Nuvali. This past months, Amaia Steps Parkway announced a one of a kind competition that will test their creativity, skill, and marketability with the Upcyling Challenge.

After Lando left the country, the winner of Amaia Steps Parkway Upcycling Challenge which commenced last Oct. 17, 24, and 25 at the Solenad 1, Nuvali will be finally revealed. From the 13 group finalists that were each given 24 hours to create marketable and practical home products using a selected material, in this case, plastic soft drink bottles.

Defining upcycling is the process of turning used goods or waste material to produce something that is often better than the original, is the most viable option. Upcycling helps reduce carbon emissions, which are the amount of carbon dioxide produced to support our lifestyles. Your carbon footprint measures your impact on the climate based on how much carbon dioxide you produce. Factors that contribute to your carbon footprint include your methods of transportation and energy usage.
