This consumer’s guide was published within the European MakeITfair Campaign, where KARAT was a regional coordinator. It describes what kind of rare metals are used to make a mobile phone, and how hard and dangerous are the working conditions of workers, often children, who mine them. The guide shows how the consumers can influence the big electronic companies to be responsible for working conditions in their mines as well as environment.
