Update: Earthworks Responds to WMT's New Jewelry

Ylan Mui

Mining reform advocacy group Earthworks has responded to Wal-Mart's new jewelry line, Love, Earth, which can be traced back to mines that meet certain environmental and social standards. The group said it is hopeful that the jewelry line is a first step but that it does not consider any large gold mines "responsible." You can read their full statement in all its nuance here.

We reported last week that Wal-Mart joined Earthworks' No Dirty Gold campaign last year after repeated pleas from the group. The Love, Earth line launched last week in partnership with Conservation International.

Some of Walmart's policies with it's Love Earth line are good steps, but I agree that it's still irresponsible to buy gold that came from mines operated by the likes of multinational mining companies such as Newmont Gold or Rio Tinto that have well- documented records of polluting and displacing the communities where they conduct their operations. Instead of buying new jewelry, try vintage.
