AOC reveals the engagement ring is “zero emissions” and made from recycled gold

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has revealed her new engagement ring is “zero emissions” and made from “recycled gold.”

The progressive Democrat, who proposed the sweeping Green New Deal to tackle climate change, touted her new ring’s eco-certification after a social media user joked she was under attack from right-wing critics.

“Vamaooooooos. Your ring has to be tinfoil or the law will tip over,” the person tweeted.

AOC replied: “Close! It is zero emissions and recycled gold.”

Social media followers congratulated the Squad member this week after she confirmed her engagement to longtime boyfriend Riley Roberts.

Rumors began swirling after AOC was spotted wearing an engagement ring during an Instagram Live video.

She confirmed the message to Business Insider journalist Eliza Relman before tweeting on Thursday: “It’s true! Thank you everyone for the get well wishes.”

The congresswoman announced that they got engaged sometime in April in her family’s hometown of Puerto Rico and have yet to finalize plans for the wedding.

The couple first met as undergraduates at Boston University.

They split shortly after graduation before rekindling their relationship.

Despite AOC’s public profile, web developer Mr. Roberts has managed to keep a pretty low profile.

Last year, he accompanied lawmakers to the Met Gala, where she wore the infamous “Tax the Rich” dress.

While the exact details about the engagement ring are unknown, its apparent eco-friendly status isn’t surprising given AOC’s stance on environmental issues.

In 2019, she presented the Green New Deal, which lays out a comprehensive plan to tackle climate change.

The proposal, introduced by AOC and Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey, calls on the US economy to move away from fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions and create new clean energy jobs.

The Green New Deal was reinstated last year but is currently stalled in Congress.
