Our resources are running out. A golden idea to start recycling more right?

That is why we have come up with different collection campaigns and workshops for schools, for companies and for stores.

Join our recycle movement!

The Gold Digger Workshop

In this workshop we take the participants on a search for gold in old phones and show the value of waste. We do this workshop for both companies and schools (check out the item the Jeugdjournaal made about us here). Fun for all ages!

The cell phone is an icon, almost everyone has an obsession with it. This fact shows: on average, we check our phone no less than 221 times a day. We are so busy with it, and yet few people know that their phones contain valuable raw materials such as gold and silver. That's why in the Netherlands alone there are millions of phones gathering dust in drawers. 

We at NoWa think that's a shame. Why should we continue to extract raw materials from the ground, when nowadays there is more above ground (in e-waste) than below ground?

We incorporated such interesting facts and impressive statistics into an interactive quiz during the workshop. Then we go to work like real urban miners, taking apart old phones in search of gold! We facilitate this with special tools and guidance. Of course we make sure that the phones that are dismantled during the workshop are recycled responsibly afterwards.

Because of this practical approach the participants look at their phones in a different way afterwards and they know much more about the value of waste and the future of recycling. We also give them concrete tips on what to do with their old cell phones.

NoWa in your store!

With our circular and stylish jewelry we show the value of waste, the importance of recycling and the potential of reuse in a positive and tangible way. We also want to encourage people to hand in their old phones and your store can play a great role in this!

How nice if you can make your customers happy with a beautiful and honest piece of jewelry and get them to take action? How special if your store can contribute in a small way to less E-waste by creating a charming collection point and thus giving the collection of old phones a positive character?
