Austin Upcycle Challenge
The Austin Upcycle Challenge took place in June 2013 in the Austin Goodwill Outlet parking lot. Participants used items from Goodwill’s blue bins, a final receptacle for items donated to Goodwill, to create artwork, refurbished furniture, home accents and much more. The Austin Upcycle Challenge was a collaboration between Goodwill Austin, Austin Creative Reuse, Austin Zero Waste Alliance and Re-Sourcery.org. These community organizations are working to help make Austin a Zero Waste City with a goal to transform trash to treasure and keep landfills clear of methane-producing textiles and home goods.
