Article 22 Peace Sign Ornament

 

Article 22’s peace sign ornament is a fitting message for the jewellery company named after the 22nd article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that uses the metal from unexploded landmines and melted-down shrapnel left behind in Laos during the Vietnam War. They transform the negative into a positive with their line of ethically created jewellery and ornaments.

 

HOW IS IT MADE?

  • Created in Laos by local artisans who melt down the metal from war debris, including unexploded landmines, left behind after the Vietnam War.
  • Proceeds are reinvested to continue to clear contaminated land. Your purchase contributes to MAG (Mines Advisory Group) to safely & expertly clear some of the 80 million unexploded bombs contaminating land in Laos
  • This purchase clears 2m2 of Laotian landscape

  • Article 22 pays local artisans at least 5 times the local minimum wage


WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
