Every year, millions of dollars worth of value on MTA MetroCards is lost or discarded. MetroChange takes this value and puts it to good use, before cards are discarded.

Our goal here at Hipcycle is to offer upcycled products that are as attractive, durable, and otherwise as desirable as traditional equivalent products (if not more so).
