“Gold mining is one of the dirtiest industry in the world today. It’s responsible for contaminating drinking water supplies, displacing local communities, and destroying traditional livelihoods in many parts of the world. In the two week period leading up to Valentine’s Day, gold sales in the US will leave 34 million metric tons of waste in their wake.”
