In this blog post ethical jeweller Greg Valerio talks about his vision for an Eco-friendly gold source from Uganda. Working in partnership with Ugandan gold mining communities, Fairtrade Africa and the CRED Foundation his vision is for all Valerio Jewellery to be sourced according to Fairtrade Ecological standards. This means mercury free gold, which in turn means women can work without risks to their children and their environment.
