Recycle your Gold!
Often times we hear about the importance of recycling aluminum cans, glass, paper, and plastic, but we rarely hear about the importance of recycling gold. Can we recycle gold? Is it important to recycle gold? The answer is yes!
Recycling gold reduces commercial gold mining and helps conserve our natural resources. Gold mining is harmful to our environment because it encourages pollution, promotes hazardous labor practices, and exposes the earth to poisonous toxins such as cyanide. The Environmental Literacy Council states that “the greatest environmental concern today that is associated with gold mining is the disposal of the overburden that is removed from the mines.” Mining gold leaves large holes in our earth and requires a lot of high polluting machinery to operate the process. Did you know that the mining production of ONE gold ring generates 20 tons of wastes?
In a world where the demand for gold is consistently high, the continuation of gold mining can deteriorate our earth and be harmful to our health and surrounding environment.
By recycling your gold, silver, or platinum jewelry you are becoming an active member in protecting the environment by reducing the amount of waste used in the commercial gold mining process. And the icing on the cake is that you receive instant CASH for your efforts!
