What is Upcycling?
At the Sustainable Agave Company, we define upcycling as reusing plant matter for another purpose after its initial use - and it is at the core of our business. We seek to remove harmful raw plant materials from landfills that have a negative environmental impact and give them a second life through upcycling. By providing upcycled agave products to our customers, we help our partners reduce their dependence on single-use plastics.
We aren’t just upcycling agave. We have upcycled, or are currently upcycling, product material from a range of plants - such as residual sugarcane. However, no matter what the material, our process does not change: taking something harmful, or that has served its initial purpose out of the environment and upcycling it for reuse. That’s what upcycling means to us.
Participating in the Circular Economy
We are proud participants in the circular economy. All of our products are created from previously-used materials. Most frequently, our products are made with upcycled agave - remaining from tequila production. Regardless of what the core material is, you can rely on the fact that our products have all been given a second life. We do not use products that have been grown solely for us or for one purpose; instead, we rely on previously used materials.
The benefit is twofold: not only are we removing potentially harmful plant material from inhabited areas and landfills, but we are also replacing single-use plastics by reducing the demand for them.
