Business Membership and Sponsor Program
UpCycle is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit located right here in Alexandria, Virginia. We connect creativity and conservation through creative reuse. How do we do it? Well, in the past year:
UpCycle collected more than 50 truckloads of materials for art, learning and business purposes that were destined for the waste stream. Then, we went to work redistributing it to the community. We collect, reuse and redistribute materials through our materials resource center which is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday in the Durant Arts Center.
UpCycle shared the joy of creative reuse with more than 750 Alexandria City Public School children in their classrooms. We brought science and arts integrated lessons to preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Students and their teachers discovered that cast-offs like bottle caps, bread ties and fabric scraps are an inspiring resource for learning.
There are lots of ways you can help UpCycle. We invite you to get involved today!
