Seeing the beauty in waste
Did you know that we throw away about 50 million tons of e-waste every year? At least 70% of this mountain of e-waste ends up in landfills. Not only a shame, but also very bad for the environment. That is why NoWa makes sustainable jewelery from pure gold and silver, extracted directly from recycled mobile phones. With your purchase you are not only doing yourself or your loved one a favor, but also the planet. Waste telephones are also collected for every piece of jewelery we sell. This is how we complete the circle.

Almost everyone on this planet has a cell phone. The problem is that many people do not know that it contains valuable raw materials such as gold and silver. That is why there are millions of telephones in the Netherlands alone, gathering dust in drawers. And in doing so, we throw 27 million euros worth of gold in the trash every year. That's a real shame!
I hope that with NoWa we will encourage people to think and that we will recycle more. I don't believe in finger pointing, but in showing how it can be done.
