Everyone loves phones. Nobody likes waste. Worldwide there are hundreds of millions of old mobile phones in people's drawers. Nothing to do.
NoWa is on a mission to collect these old discarded phones and turn them into something beautiful. As our raw materials are running out, it is becoming increasingly important that we recycle more. Only then can we reuse valuable raw materials - such as gold and silver in old telephones. For example, to make beautiful circular jewelry :)
E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream and a major problem. That is why we work together with our partner Closing the Loop. They collect and ship discarded phones from Africa and then recycle them responsibly. For every piece of jewelry we sell, we donate a part, so that Closing the Loop can continue the work. In this way, all metals from waste telephones are used for eternity, and you contribute to less E-waste worldwide.
In addition, we also think it is important to move in an inclusive society. The jewelry that you receive beautifully packaged at home is packed in a sheltered workshop. This will create more jobs for people with a distance to the labor market.
