I love recycling. More specifically "Upcycling".
Wikipedia defines Upcycling as "the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value."

I define Upcycling as finding a way to use something that would otherwise go to Goodwill or the dump.
With my own limited scope of creativity, I'm always astounded to see the ways artists find to upcycle.
Go to any Goodwill store or search your dad's closet. You'll probably find neckties from the last five decades. If you don't want to face the crowds at your thrift store or the mothballs in dad's closet, there are scores of vintage ties available online.
