Welcome to our eighth “Letter from the CEO”, a letter directly from our CEO Sierra. Once a month, this letter will include behind-the-scenes of UP Cycle Design and share exciting updates so you’re the first to know. Today's letter features FIVE new products, meet our new vendor, and a gift guide for Valentine's Day!
FIVE New Products
After six months of collaboration, we finally have not one...not two, but FIVE new products made from 100% upcycled plastic from our newest vendor PhillyPlastiCo: a clock, coaster, sea animal keychains, carabiners, and a flower pot! These are made with a custom color specifically for our UP Cycle Design customers that you can't get anywhere else! For each product sold, we donate to Rabbit Recycling, whose mission is to collect items your municipal recycling services do not and provide a zero-waste, convenient solution for households and businesses to recycle, reuse, and upcycle. Check them out here.
New Vendor: Cole from PhillyPlastiCo
Meet our newest vendor Cole from PhillyPlastiCo! Cole Fiory founded PhillyPlastiCo during the pandemic when he saw all our recycling getting thrown in the trash trucks. This eventually led him to discover Precious Plastic, a global open source organization & community looking to empower people to make new things out of 100% Recycled Plastic. Cole took his background and Degree in Architecture and Design to come up with a line of useful and durable products made from Recycled Plastic that are designed to last a lifetime.
