Happy Valentine’s Day from No Dirty Gold

Happy Valentine’s Day from No Dirty Gold
Dear James M,
5 years, 50 jewelers and 500 more things on our to do list…
We’re celebrating Valentine’s Day – and our 5th anniversary – by announcing our 50th signatory to the Golden Rules for more responsible sourcing of precious metals! That’s right, thanks to efforts by concerned consumers like you, 50 of the world’s leading jewelers, representing 23% of the US jewelry market, have pledged to work towards sourcing their metals in accordance with the human rights, social, and environmental criteria of the Golden Rules.
Jewelers are concerned about where their metals come from
"Precious metals mining causes toxic pollution and is often tied to human rights abuses, which are unacceptable to us and our customers," explained Marc Choyt of Reflective Images, a Santa Fe, New Mexico-based jewelry designer and retailer, who was the 50th jeweler to sign on.
When will mining companies step up to meet this demand?
Today, we congratulate Reflective Images, Boucheron, Toby Pomeroy and the other jewelers and designers who are seeking alternatives to dirty, or irresponsibly mined gold.
We also know that much of the hard work remains to be done. How soon will mining companies respond to this demand, by ending destructive practices like mining in forests and dumping wastes in lakes and rivers?
We’ll need your help to get there. Stay tuned!
And have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Payal, Scott, Alan, and the rest of the No Dirty Gold campaign team
PS – Can you ask 5 friends to take the No Dirty Gold pledge?

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
