Wedding rings provide a difficult choice to those trying to express their connectedness to the Earth and its occupants. Tradition dictates the use of gold bands, but the reality is that extracting and refining precious metals from the Earth is very damaging.
You may wish to consider wedding bands made from recycled gold or platinum. Wedding bands at www.greenKarat.com are made from post-consumer recycled gold, refined in an ISO 14001 (non-polluting) refinery. This option allows you to observe tradition, without contributing to the planetís environmental problems.
I hope this helps!
