AMAZON AID FOUNDATION’S
CLEANER GOLD CAMPAIGN FOR CONSUMERS
What is the Cleaner Gold Campaign?
Make Cleaner Gold the true Gold Standard.
Our future depends on it.
Mercury poisoning, deforestation, and human exploitation are connected to illicit and unregulated gold mining in the Amazon. It’s in mobile phones and the jewelry we wear.
We urge consumers to take action — understanding where and how to buy, having your voice heard, and advocating for corporate commitments to responsible gold sourcing can make change possible. Cleaner Gold means safe practices that protect both people and the environment from harm. Cleaner gold supports local populations without exploitation.
Amazon Aid urges consumers to do their research and then take action. Researching means coming to understand where and how to buy cleanly-sourced gold that does not irreparably harm the Amazon. Action means using one’s voice by sharing information and advocating for corporate commitments to responsible gold sourcing worldwide.
