Out with the new, in with the old

The Power of Circular

What is upcycling

One of the key components of our mission is upcycling. Unlike recycling, which breaks down materials into their base components, upcycling is about transforming waste into something new of higher value. In our case, we are using material that would otherwise end up in landfills, helping reducing waste, while creating opportunities in Costa Rica

The Benefits

One of the significant advantages of upcycling is its contribution to waste reduction and resource conservation.  By upcycling materials like leather and introducing innovative alternatives such as Piñatex, a limited edition pineapple leather made from pineapple fibers, we minimize the demand for new leather and significantly reduce the environmental impacts associated with traditional leather production.
