The Orange company decided to educate its consumers about the problem of electronic waste in an innovative way. As part of the cooperation with the company, we have acquired integrated circuits of phones for creative upcycling into various types of upcycling products and accessories. Electro-waste, under the eye of our designers, turned into real pieces of art. We tried to make the most of the used parts of the phones by processing them into beautiful jewellery and accessories.
Materials We Used
Through our unique expertise, we are able to make this unique jewellery from integrated circuits found in mobile phones and a mix of metals and resins.
The Circular Effect
As a result, we upcycled several hundred parts of phones and computers, from which beautiful jewellery was created in various forms like earrings, cufflinks, pendants, etc. Mainly jewellery was distributed to employees; however Orange organised a competition for clients where they could win a few of them. Jewellery is also used as a part of educational programs on e-waste recycling and brand events, being a perfect example of how wisely you can manage waste. In the future, we plan to introduce Orange jewellery to the market reaching an even more significant amount of consumers.
Our economic model is built on scarcity. Infinite wants and limited resources. A fully circular economy offers the prospect of a global economy which is regenerative by design and abundant. As a business and as a citizen you are aware that to answer waste management we require ‘rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’. This coupled with technological disruption won’t make your success long-lasting. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to give a second chance to your waste, saving on limited resources while gaining new products at no cost and more importantly joining the spectacular circular movement. Wasting is so problematic, start by not wasting your time and write immediately your successful story with DekoEko!
