Upcycle Nation - Promo :60

Finalist in Environment & Sustainability


"Upcycle Nation" promotes sustainable living and creative reuse of materials. The show, which features up and coming designers and artists who turn trash into treasure, highlights the importance of reducing waste and the environmental impact of our consumption habits.

Strategy and Execution

Fashion gets altered in this high-stakes competition show, reimagined and refashioned. With host Karrueche Tran (entrepreneur, Emmy Award-winning actress) and judges Peder Cho (viral, trailblazing upcycling innovator) and Jerome Lamaar (nonbinary fashion designer and the A-List’s best kept secret). Our upcycling contestants are all clever, crafty and fashion forward. And they all have the RAW talent to make something out of nothing. Let the games begin.


Nominated for a GLAAD Award, the show Upcycle promotes sustainability by raising awareness about upcycling, inspiring eco-friendly choices, and empowering designers and viewers. It fosters a culture of mindful consumption and encourages a shift towards eco-conscious practices in the fashion industry.
