Introduction

Our Story

“Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression. ”

Haim Ginott

Many, many years from now, here’s what we’ll be telling our grandchildren…

Once upon a time, people simply threw away anything they didn’t or couldn’t use anymore.

Back then, children spent all their time on computers and watching TV, and playing on their parents’ phones. That’s all they wanted to do!

Can you imagine what a world it must’ve been!

Luckily, a few superheroes decided to change this and created the Upcycler’s Lab learning tools for kids.

Ok, we weren’t really superheroes, but we had something to do with saving the world!

And back in the present…

What we do:

Upcycler’s Lab is a social enterprise that makes learning tools such as board games and Do-It-Yourself activity boxes for smart, curious, can’t-sit-still-for-one-minute kids age 5 to 7. Our boxes are developed by a team of early education experts, curriculum developers, teachers, product designers and parents.

Ordering an Upcycler’s Lab DIY Activity Box means:

For the children: a few hours of weekend fun, working on different projects that can be done individually or in a team.

For the parents: a few hours of being able to hear your own thoughts.

For the world: a generation with a whole new perspective on waste and environment.

While all projects in our activity boxes are made from up cycled materials and we do focus on educating children about the importance of protecting the environment, that’s not what it’s all about: the activities themes are often related to school subjects such as shapes and patterns, habitats, water and more. with a focus on conservation.

How we got here:

The Upcycler’s Lab is a project of The Upcycle Co. We used to make products for adults, but we realized that we were unable to achieve our ultimate goal: to create a mindset and behavioral change around waste.

It dawned on us that this would be far easier with children, since they are not only more optimistic and willing to learn, but are also able to convince the adults around them to change. This is how we shifted our focus on early education.
