Did you know that there is gold in the motherboard of your computer? Actress Nikki Reed started a partnership with US computer manufacturer Dell to recycle this gold from discarded motherboards. A sustainable jewelry line is born!
Dell announced this during the CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The collection is called ‘The Circular Collection’ and consists of 14-18 carat gold rings, necklaces and bracelets. Nikki indicates that many people do not realize that only 12.5% of the electronics are recycled in a sustainable way. Looking at smartphones, people in America alone are throwing away about $ 60 million of gold and silver (in old phones). That’s a lot of money! Nikki indicates:
“The Circular Collection represents a beautiful world in which materials are constantly reused and repurposed and we strive for zero waste.
All jewelry is for sale in Nikki Reed’s webshop Bayou by You.
