HOW WE CAN ALL CONTRIBUTE: CELEBRATING SUSTAINABILITY DAY
Shedding light on the global issue of mercury used in small-scale gold mining.
WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY DAY?
Sustainability day is when the ethical and sustainable communities share facts and insights into how we can better co-exist in harmony with our planet and reduce our impact as much as possible.
This day was created with the goal of teaching everyone the importance of our impact on the environment, and what steps we can take as a brand, a community, and even as individuals to neutralize and even reverse it.
The United Nations has declared mercury emissions as a major threat to the planet and 38% of these harmful emissions come from mining for gold that is primarily used to make jewelry.
FUTURA's mission is all about tackling global mercury emissions which is an issue that not many people are aware of. We hope to make this global problem more widely known and understood so that we as a global society can do our best to work towards a mercury-free future.
YOUR CHOICES SHAPE THE FUTURE
When you purchase Fairmined Ecological gold jewelry, you are casting your vote for a better future. Your choice creates incentive for more mines to make the transition from dirty gold mining methods that use toxic-chemicals, to mining practices that are Ecological and ethical. These clean and sustainable gold mining practices also ensure the land and waters around the mine are returned to their natural state, so that the earth can continue to be healthy for us and future generations.
It starts with educating mining communities about the new methods available for extracting gold from the earth so they can stop using old and harmful mining practices...
Finally, we have gold we can be proud of. Gold that makes a difference for the betterment of our wellbeing and our planet's health.
