About

Reuse, repurpose and lastly recycle!

Here at Upcyclehero I love to find and buy /vintage items. Finding these new homes by selling them on in my shop means they will hopefully have a much longer useful life.

Some of these items no longer have much use in there current form so I try to upcycle or repurpose these so they can become more useful or meaningful again.

Recycling is a great idea but it does mean all the energy that went into creating the object is lost forever. I would love if more people would take a second to think how they might reuse an object before putting it in the recycle bin.

I live in the Netherlands. My house is about 10 minutes from Germany in one direction and 10 minutes to Belgium in the other. This gives me access to a wide variety of interesting and unusual materials to create and work with. I am passionate about giving these more value by upcycling or finding them new homes and not less by recycling.

I have another Etsy shop where I sell cufflinks made with LEGO® Bricks www.etsy.com/shop/cufflinkhero I have several "Hero" shops, Cufflinkhero and Upcyclehero. So this is where the 'Severalheros' name comes from. I hope to add a few more 'Hero' shops in the future but this always seems to happen organically so there is no set date for another.

I occasionally post some new items and things of interest for both 'Hero' shops on Facebook so like my page if you want see some updates.
This link will take you there www.severalheros.com

Thanks for taking the time to read this and don't forget to have a look at my shop. :) www.etsy.com/shop/Upcyclehero

Welcome to Upcyclehero. I like to find old objects and give them new life. I get inspired by the materials I have to hand and am passionate about giving these more value by upcycling or finding them new homes and not less by recycling.
