Why we love it: Nowa stands for old waste, where beautiful jewelry is created from silver and gold extracted directly from old mobile phones.
Nowa works closely with 'Closing The Loop', a party that saves used phones from e-waste dumps in Africa. In 2015, founder Josette worked for Closing the Loop, focusing on circularity for mobile phones. Together with her friend Joyce, she came up with the idea of making beautiful jewelry made from waste phones collected by Closing the Loop. For every piece of jewelry, Closing the Loop, winner of the Circular Award 2018, will collect and recycle five waste phones from Africa. You get a beautiful piece of jewelry, and you’re able to contribute to less e-waste worldwide.
