Amaia’s Upcycling Challenge-Winners

Amaia’s Upcycling Challenge saw the participation of a slew of design students, professionals, and upcycling enthusiasts, out of which thirteen were chosen finalists. All the participants are given sufficient time to create marketable and practical home products from scratch using a selected material—in this case, plastic soft drink bottles.

Upcycling helps reduce carbon emissions, which are the amount of carbon dioxide produced to support our lifestyles. Your carbon footprint measures your impact on the climate based on how much carbon dioxide you produce. Factors that contribute to your carbon footprint include your methods of transportation and energy usage.

Upcycling, the process of turning used goods or waste material to produce something that is often better than the original, is the most viable option. This was the idea behind Amaia Steps Parkway Nuvali’s The Upcycling Challenge.

If they’re not biodegradable, they’re out there occupying space and possibly polluting the earth’s seas or forests. Before throwing anything out, think about that. It may be a small step but it’s something that will matter in the long run. Upcycling also saves money (like making old clothes into a bed cover) and helps preserve out resources.

Ayala Land’s Nuvali, which spans 1,750 hectares, is an inspiring model of a green, sustainable eco-community. Built on the pillars of environmental, economic, and social sustainability, community development remains a primary objective of Nuvali to achieve this balance.

Nuvali, located in the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba and the Municipality of Cabuyao in Laguna, is part of the growth corridor of the Calabarzon region. Its campus environment integrates a community where residences, business and recreation flow seamlessly. It is a community where you would proudly raise a family.
