Just in time for Valentine's Day, Tiffany, Target and Helzberg have joined the 'No Dirty Gold' movement. According to the EPA, mining continues to be the country's most toxic industry. And a single gold ring creates about 20 tons of mine waste. That's pretty horrifying.
The group's pact includes a promise to study metals supply chain, improve supplier sourcing criteria, increase recycled gold content, and seek more responsibly produced metals. (Mahoney, 2014)
So what do you think? Will this turn you into a Tiffany shopper?
