Started by Ethos Water founder Peter Thum, Fonderie 47 is a cause-conscious jewelry line that removes assault weapons from conflict zones, melting them to create a line of delicate pieces. Fonderie 47 has funded the removal of over 25,000 assault rifles in Africa since its inception and also supports meaningful programs aimed at empowering a generation of young African leaders.

Assault rifles enable and exacerbate many problems in Africa including violence against women and children, child soldiers, inspires a misallocation of resources, and cause countless deaths.
