The Upcyclers initiative is a non-profit youth-driven organisation, based in AKL, NZ.

The initiative is a branch of student-driven progress for sustainability.

They delivered 27 workshops to 508 students about the three R’s to a local primary school, collected 200+ unwanted clothing from the Salvation Army and student donations, and produced 16 hrs of school upcycling sessions and online tutorials that will be introduced as a model for other schools.

Students from all ages really enjoy our workshops, and the concept of upcycling is becoming more exciting and mainstream in the community.
