WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
Building on its experiences with the Green Gold campaign in Colombia, Both ENDS has extended its cooperation to ARM. Together we aim to give local mining communities access to the Fairtrade market. In addition, consumers are shown that their choice for Fairtrade jewellery and minerals have a direct influence on the living standard of miners.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
Both ENDS facilitated the foundation of ARM and acts as an adviser on its Board of Directors. Both ENDS is directly involved in strategic planning, fund-raising and building a network for ARM in Africa and Asia.
The ' green gold' has recently been certified as Fairtrade gold by FLO (Fairtrade Labelling Organisation), and is being sold in the Netherlands, UK and Germany.
