Upcycling is the process of turning materials from the wastestream into new materials of higher environmental value.
Upcycle Yourself is a similar concept on a human scale, turning from agents of pollution into agents of environmental change.

On y va

Je quitte demain matin pour Ottawa, sur un autobus, mon velo dans un boite. Je me retrouve sans dictionnaire et entoure par les claviers anglophones, donc je m'excuse en avance pour tous les erreurs.

I've been preparing for this trip for the last few weeks. The most challenging aspect so far is the amount of consumption... the general aim of the trip is to inform people about a more ecological way of living, though doing this bike trip does involve acquiring a number of items (tent, sleeping bag, bike bell and lights, panniers, etc). J'ai trouve a peu pres un motie usage, mais l'autre motie j'avais besoin a acheter nouveau. So life goes... at least I have a well-equipped alternative to a car now, and should be able to be relatively self-sufficient while being self-propelled.

Voici notre intineraire pour le voyage. Je vais passer quelques jours proche de ma famille et mes amis au debut juin. Yahoo :)
