Our guest this week is Marc Choyt. Marc is the co-Founder
Jewelry and one of the leading activists for fair trade jewelry
in North America. Marc works on marketing and publicity for the
company (like the websites), strategic planning, and the
like. He also focuses on their supply chain, seeking ways to
create jewelry that has exceptional environmental and ethical
sourcing standards. Marc is also the author of The Ethical
Jewelry Exposé, a new guide that explores the history of
misrepresentations in the jewelry industry that seeks to hide the
fact that millions of people have died in conflicts financed by
precious gems and metals and great environmental and social harm
continues to happen despite the narrative mainstream jewelers
branding themselves as "ethical" and "responsible".
