There are many ways to recycle a used wedding band but not so many new wedding bands from recycled materials. Good Point Recycling
has had the plan to make wedding bands from gold taken from discarded computers since 2004 and they are finally getting close to making them available for sale. I've written about the negative environmental effects
of gold mining. The company has elected not to make "vanity products" from the recycled gold and the proceeds from the rings, which will cost around $5,000 each will benefit the non-profit group Earthworks which spearheads the No Dirty Gold campaign. The rings should finally be on the market around Valentine's Day in 2007.
