Recycling Art Studio
Turn trash into treasure
The Studio up-cycles trash into new products.
We accept soft plastic and styrofoam from locals and businesses, that our studio crew turns into different products such as bean bags, pillows and flower pots which are sold on the island.
On an average month, we up-cycled 1000 kilogram of plastics.
By this initiative, N.K.o.S aims to stop as much plastic as possible ending up in the oceans or in dumpsites by turning it into treasure, and at the same time creating employment for the locals.
Update: The Art Studio is finally REOPEN and now with a better venue.
Pay by Plastic Shop
Swap your trash into items
The Shop accepts soft plastic and styrofoam as payment. Our customer can
swap their trash into available things such as rice, school supplies, re-usable products and other donated items.
With this project we aim to encourage segregation and to stimulate the local economy by offering an alternative way of accessing useful, and green products.
Since the opening of The Shop, there is a never-ending line of (mostly) local kids, small businesses and mums.
Update: The Plastic Sari2x Shop is OPEN in Burgos
and ready for swaps!

Helping children grow into eco heroes
Our kids club serves three purposes, to activate, teach and feed our children. As the pandemic and a super typhoon stole our childrens right to attend school we needed to find an alternative educational program.
The club gather 40 kids three times a week in group activities including dancing, arts & crafts and fun learning games. At the end of each gathering we feed all our participants a healthy meal.
In between our group sessions we offer tutoring in keeping up with the school modules, ensuring no kid fall behind.
Update: Our kids club is open 5 days / week and accept both long-term and day volunteers.
