From War to Peace
From War to PeaceFrom the late 1940’s into the early 1980’s, immense quantities of copper were mined in Montana to create copper cable. Throughout the upper Midwest, thousands of miles of cable connected nuclear warheads in silos to U.S. military command centers. Since the late 1980s, the U.S. has entered into a number of nuclear disarmament treaties. The cabling connecting the disarmed nuclear missile silos was left in the soil of the American Midwest. This cabling, up to 3.5 inches in diameter and made of plastic, copper, and steel, was buried deep underground to keep it impervious to nuclear assault.
One company, From War to Peace, has patiently dug much of this missile cabling out of the soil, recycled the metals into their pure forms, and used the copper to create a wonderful alloy called Peace Bronze©. Peace Bronze© is then used to create glorious art and jewelry for those who share a commitment to a world without war. Every part of the jewelry made by From War to Peace is recycled. So you can wear your favorite vision of peace and feel good about it, too.
