What impact does the mining of diamonds have on environment?
The diamonds are truly the crème de la crème of all the gemstones, but they come with a heavy negative price. There are tremendous social and environmental impacts created while the extraction of diamonds along with impacts on the whole diamond product chain. To name a few, child labor, poor working conditions, and huge environmental impacts are some saddening results of the extraction process behind that beautiful diamond ring of yours.
There are countries with below than average pay for miners while children are forced into mining at a very young age. For the same reasons, they also go through physical and sexual abuse. Poor living conditions further give rise to diseases amongst them and hence it takes a toll on their life ahead. Environmental impacts include Soil erosion, demolition of entire ecosystem and deforestation hence weakening livable conditions on this planet.
What steps does Syndiora take?
Syndiora strongly aims to put a stop to all of the above by gradually taking steps towards the same. We deal with Lab-Grown Diamond Jewellery which minimizes the human and environmental effects together in one go as our jewellery is curated out of diamonds that are manufactured in a laboratory under replicated conditions as below the surface of the earth. Syndiora resonates with the statement that when a diamond can be procured in the same manner without harming the environment and people, and can be purchased at an affordable price, then WHY NOT?
Beyond this, the scope of vigilance and likelihood to share a brighter future extends furthermore. Some of the activities included the below.
