Do you know that the production of one gold ring generates 20 TONS of mine waste? Other than loosing trees read how the environment can be affected in the business of mining gold and see what you can do about it through No Dirty Gold.
So, the next time you buy a gift or things for your home, ponder awhile to consider its processes and how it can affect the environment if it is not recyclable.
This knowledge initiates my 5th incentive to do all "ThRRRees". I am using stainless steel, which is 100% recyclable, in my creations. So, will it be up to scratch with gold? You tell me.
