What can I do about it?
Think about what you are buying and whether you need it, take action by contacting electronics companies, and get involved with charity and campaign groups.
Think about what you are buying
Avoid buying new electronics if they aren't needed, and research electronics manufacturers’ positions on conflict minerals when you do need to purchase new electronics.
You could contact companies to see what they are doing to eradicate conflict minerals from their supply chain. Raise Hope For Congo has some great resources to help you take action.
Reach out to charities and organisations that are working to raise awareness and eradicate conflict minerals. For example, Conflict-free Campus Initiative has some great resources, or Congo Calling has some other ways to get involved.
