Gold mining has a very high environmental impact. It leads to deforestation, rejection of harmful products in the environment and therefore endangering whole ecosystems. Recycled gold, on the other hand, requires only a overhaul and treatment to purify it, its ecological impact is therefore negligible.
The gold exploitation also has a social impact, minors often work in difficult conditions and it happens that they are exploited, remunerated very weakly for a work that endangers their health and does not allow them to live decently. Recycled gold therefore makes it possible not to promote intensive farms where working conditions are not acceptable. For what is white diamonds that we use, they all follow the Kimberley process, which guarantees that they are not Involved in the financing of armed conflicts.
