Upcycling is about creatively working with materials, but it’s also a social process and way of thinking. Upcycling involves connecting and collaborating – and even informs the choices we make to live sustainably. We met Janette Murray-Wakelin and Alan Murray on Sunday at the Sustainable Living Festival. They just spent three years making RAW the Documentary. It’s a film about their commitment to raw food and their aim is to inspire others to make informed decisions about sustainable lifestyles.. Just as raw food sustained them on their marathon journey around Australia, upcycling sustains us; materially, socially and ethically. And this is why one of UpShop’s upcycled creations – the bicycle bracelet – will appear in the Silent Auction at the premiere of RAW this Sunday in Melbourne.
