Retailers Who Support the Golden Rules: http://www.nodirtygold.org/supporting_retailers.cfm

The following retailers have taken the first step towards more responsible sourcing of gold by declaring their support for the Golden Rules. These Rules represent social, environmental, and human rights criteria for more responsible gold production.
