“Tech Holiday Gift Ideas and Gift Guide 2013.” “The Best Gifts for Men.” “Official David Bowie Gift Guide.” This holiday season, you've undoubtedly come across gift guides like these online. They may talk about the latest trends, but you know what these guides don't mention? The amount of gold and other metals that are so frequently found in these goods — and the myriad harmful impacts that are associated with gold production: poisoned waters, violation of human rights and habitat destruction.
This year, we present an alternative gift guide: The No Dirty Gold Holiday Gift Guide. Check it out to learn more about the true costs of our gifts — and about what we can do to say No to Dirty Gold.
