Trashformers celebrates ‘upcycling’, the gold rush of junk. In this 3-part series four designers on the forefront of the upcycling movement are tasked with taking parts from a school bus, an airplane and a ferris wheel and turning them into high end, high value products – in only three days. Giving trash a second life is making a fortune for thousands of Americans. Whether it’s designer labels crafting couture from cast offs or savvy stay at home moms making millions on Etsy, there’s big money to be made. But turning trash into cash isn’t going to be easy. Parts are in short supply and the designers will have to battle it out against each other to seize the best pieces. Using skill and imagination, they’ll roll back years of decay and transform these rusty objects into pieces of design magic.
