Diesel has recently announced – DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR, a new series of collections , which focus on a commitment to a more sustainable future through upcycling in production and adapting to a changing world. According to Diesel , the word UPCYCLING refers to the process of ‘Transforming Existing Products’ , Waste Material, and Deadstock into new products, while reducing the consumption of raw materials and decreasing the energy use , air and water pollution , and greenhouse gas emission. Essentially , it is the creation of something new by using what they already have . However, it seems the upcycled products are more expensive than the regular ones – of course, more effort is required to create them.
