Upcycler of the Month--Mark Langan


Mark Langan is an Ohio artist who has mastered the art of upcycling. For about five years, his focus has been giving used corrugated cardboard a new life as sculpture. His materials are about as simple (and green) as it gets: corrugated boxes, non-toxic glue, a razor knife, a cutting edge and mat.

While he acknowledges that he isn't making a dent in the waste stream, he hopes to inspire people to recycle, and we heartily agree with his assessment that, "It is something rather than nothing." We might add, it is something extraordinary.

He often works on commission (as you can see from the company logos he's created) and you can see more or contact him at
