Right now, while you’re reading this on your phone or computer, you may have a product of slavery in your hand.

On average we spend 7.5 hours a day using electronics — but have you ever wondered what goes into these devices or how they’re made? The reality is that almost every electronic device we use in our everyday lives could include conflict minerals mined by slaves in the Congo.
