NVC artisans upcycle Nespresso coffee capsules into Christmas ornaments

NVC artisans upcycle Nespresso coffee capsules into Christmas ornaments

Look what’s been brewing in NVC’s artisan workshop… Our artisans have been transforming discarded Nespresso single-serve coffee capsules into beautiful Christmas ornaments. They’ll be ready to decorate your Christmas 2018 trees!

Each ornament is truly trash turned into treasure. These objects will be kept and valued, so the resource-intensive process of recycling ends with your purchase.

These beautiful Christmas ornaments are made from hundreds of used coffee capsules.
Skilled hands save the aluminum capsules from garbage dumps, turning them instead into beautiful keepsakes that will last years.

Donate your used coffee capsules

At this time, we only accept single-serve coffee capsules made of  aluminum or other metals. Unfortunately, plastic coffee pods are not pliable and can’t be used for our crafts. Drop off your capsules at the following locations:

(Attn: Nena)

San Juan/Greenhills:
Fiesta Greetings Bldg.
160 Alfonso XIII, San Juan
(Attn: Mariel Tolentino)

Each purchase helps others

As with all our Artisans of Hope products, every purchase directly helps the person who made the item, and all proceeds are poured back into NVC’s nutrition and education projects for children in need.
