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.
Covid-19 update: The Studio is running on limited capacity and are in need of funds to fully re-open.
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.
Covid-19 update: The Shop is temporary closed.
A textile empowering atelier
A.T.E. Atelier is a community sewing business aiming to empower our local women by offering free training in needlework, followed by a fair and prosperous workspace where each individual can grow.
A.T.E. create custom-made products for individuals and businesses parallel with continuous development of up-cycled products together with The Recycling Studio. Our goal is to ensure re-usable, green products are available for all local households to an affordable price.
Covid-19 update: A.T.E. is operational and are happy to receive visitors that pre-booked their visit.
Create an army of eco warriors
Our most important work is to educate our community kids (and adults) about waste management and how to be eco-kind.
All our on-going projects is pointless if education and understanding is not integrated in our work towards a healthier and greener island. Once our local residents understand why we need to segregate, lessen single use plastic and buy local products – the real magic of change happens!
Covid-19 update: The program is temporarily on hold but we aim to offer our services online as soon as possible.
