Save money. Save the planet. Start upcycling.
We have been set a mission by Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) to help Norwich, and the nation become more eco-friendly. How? By building and launching an UpCycle startup transforming waste from local businesses into something new and valuable.. We are calling it StartUpCycling (gettit?). We’re going to work out how we can reduce landfill, and create a more sustainable city, together. This is part of the Upcycle Your Waste project which is funded by the European Union under the Interreg 2 Seas Programme. We also have sponsorship from UEA & Langham Recruitment. so that we can offer £4,000 in cash prizes.
Norwich BID have hired us a COVID secure circus tent for Sync the City StartUpcycling. The dates are 10-11th July (Saturday 9am to Sunday 6pm).
