“Greg Valerio is fighting for justice in the jewellery industry – MBE and award winning British fair trade ethical jeweller and environmental activist. Part of the Fairtrade Fortnight 2017 programme. fair trade refreshments will be served.
“How is it that 150 million small-scale miners earn less than $2USD a day? How can it be that the people of the land do not receive the wealth of their land? Instead this wealth flows principally to transnational stock market listed companies and brands, whose only care is for their profit margins. The conceit of luxury jewellery is to ignore this injustice at its source. This is why we need fair trade in jewellery.” Greg Valerio”
