A Why Is Upcycling Seen As An Improvement Over Recycling B

a. Why is up-cycling seen as an improvement over recycling?
b. Doesn’t up-cycling just let manufacturers off the hook? They can continue to produce non-recyclable materials and let companies like TerraCycle fix the problem for them. What do you think?
c. Critics of TerraCycle’s business practices accuse it of green washing by taking materials straight from the original manufacturers rather than just from recycle drives. Is that a fair criticism? Why or why not?
d. Think of your company (or a company you have worked for in the past). How could your organization up-cycle?
