Ethical Gold film – coming soon
Back from Uganda, and now in the editing process of the film about ethical gold mining, an African first!
Overlooked by many when they are buying a ring or even a mobile phone, the gold industry is archaic in it’s ethical approach, but now finally that is starting to change, with a new initiative that aims to improve conditions for miners, eliminate child labour, and eradicate the need for mercury to be used in the processing.
The story follows longtime gold campaigner Greg Valerio and local partner EWAD, as they visit the first Fairtrade gold mine and produce the first mercury free gold in the whole of Africa.
Here’s some photos from the project, full film coming soon…
