A jewellery retailer has imported the world’s first “Fairtrade” and “Fairmined” silver to Britain, in a bid to improve livelihoods of miners working in dangerous conditions and ensure ethical standards and traceability.
“Fairtrade” silver pays a premium price to poor, independent miners, who represent the vast majority of the labour force mining precious metals globally.
CRED Jewellery, based in Chichester in southern England, has imported some 3 kg. of the silver, extracted from the remote Sotrami mine in Peru, one of the mines certified as Fairtrade and Fairmined.
