The first mention of the term upcycling is found in a 1994 article in the architecture and antiques magazine Salvo, in an interview with mechanical engineer Reiner Pilz who explains: “I call recycling down-cycling. What we need is up-cycling, thanks to which old products are given a higher, not a lower, value.” Source: revibe-upcycling.com – The evolution and history of Upcycling: from the 40s to nowadays
