Wedding Rings from Scrap Phones

1 February 2017

Niels, our Foundation manager & Communications, asked his girlfriend to marry him last summer. Now they want to make their wedding rings from gold out of scrap phones. You can help by sending them your old mobile phone for free!

You can send your phone to “Closing the Loop. Antwoordnummer 45577, 1040 WD Amsterdam. T.a.v. Mélisande en Niels”.

Niels & Melisande

They need 400 mobile phones to have enough gold to make two wedding rings. Your phone will, like all other phones we collect in Africa and Asia, go to our recyclers. Niels will buy the gold back from the recycler in order to make the wedding rings.
