Tell Jewelry Companies to Support Responsible Gold Production

Two weeks ago, the No Dirty Gold Campaign published an ad in the New York Times. The ad listed the leaders of the jewelry industry who have committed to selling gold that has been produced with greater respect for human rights and the environment. The campaign has called on jewelry retailers - and mining companies that produce gold - to ensure that gold is produced in more socially and environmentally responsible ways (to see the ad, click here) : //ga0.org/ct/L1AwXnF1tXRw/
The ad also listed the “laggards” within the industry - those companies that have not made this commitment. This is where we need your help today.

Click here to urge the laggards to commit to selling responsibly-produced gold.

The production of a single gold ring generates, on average, 20 tons of waste. Gold mining has caused massive environmental destruction, contaminated fisheries and fresh water used for drinking and irrigation, and displaced tens of thousands of rural farming, fishing, and ranching communities. Zale Corp., the Signet Group (the parent firm of Sterling and Kay Jewelers), Tiffany & Co., Helzberg Diamonds, Fortunoff, Cartier, Piaget, and Van Cleef & Arpels are to be applauded for taking the lead on this issue, but we need your help to convince other companies that they need to join the industry leaders list.

Over the last two years more than 30,000 of you have signed the No Dirty Gold Pledge and your work is really paying off.

The jewelry industry is starting to see how destructive mining can be to communities, but we need to keep working until all gold is produced responsibly.
