Everyone likes phones. No one likes trash. Worldwide, hundreds of millions of old cell phones are sitting 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 resources run 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 phones. For example, to make beautiful circular jewelry :)

E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream and a big problem. That's 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 contribute a portion so that Closing the Loop can continue its work. This way, all metals from discarded phones are used for eternity, and you contribute to less E-waste worldwide.

In addition, we also find it important to move in an inclusive society. The jewelry that you receive beautifully packaged home, are packed at a social workshop. This way more jobs are created for people with a distance to the labor market.
