Up-cycling is an even greener way of re-cycling – you find a new purpose for your unwanted items before you throw them away.

Up-cycling helps the environment in several ways.  Your old items aren’t going to the landfill sites,  where a gas called methane is released, which contributes to climate change.

Up-cycling is about taking something old, vintage, treasure and giving it a new lease of life.

At MakeItWorkShop we have a treasure trove of pre-loved items that are vintage, rare, retro and collectable.

Come and check us out at Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport, PR8 1EL.
