Mining anything has negative effects on the earth, but precious metal extraction is particularly hard on the planet. Brilliant Earth, a company that sells jewelry made with recycled metals, describes several of the downsides to mining platinum. Platinum ore is pulled out of tunnels that are very energy-intensive to dig. It takes one ton of ore to produce one ounce of platinum, and all that ore must be treated with chemicals to get the platinum out. The process of refining platinum from its raw form into the metal we recognize is extremely polluting. By recycling your Old catalytic converters, you limit the need to mine platinum and other precious metals. This is a big win for the environment.
