Ethical Jewellery Materials
A short post to say that the ethical jewellery educational materials entitled The Red & Green Book written by Cally Oldershaw and myself are now available in PDF downloads from my site and the Fair Jewellery Action site.
The aim of this material is to kick-start those who want to begin the exploration of what it means to be an ethical jeweller. With a basic introduction to the mining sector, these modules will explore the issues, the supply chains and recommend actions that jewellers can take to improve their ethical performance.
The Red & Green Book will cover Mining, Gold, Diamonds and Gemstones as well as a glossary on industry initiatives that are seeking to address the ethical and Fair Trade uplift of our industry.
They are free to download and have been sponsored by National Association of Goldsmiths, Company of Master Jewellers, Birmingham Assay Office and CAFOD (Catholic Overseas Development Agency).
