Upcycling is so fun! For those of you who don't know what upcycling is, it's the process of repurposing trash or other items that may be thrown away, and turning it into something that will have a greater or brand new purpose! If you turn a blanket into curtains, that's upcycling too, it doesn't have to be trash that's being repurposed.  Upcycling is a great process because it keeps trash out of the landfils and gives it a new life!

Check out what Tiffany upcycles with Tristin and Tyler in the episode! It's so cool, and I'm not giving you any hints!  Oh, by the way, Tiffany just wrote a book called Remake It!
