Really distressing to see the reports - showing that the cobalt mined from mines has children as young as 4 are working - so the mobile phones in our hands and our kids' hands have components mined by kids even younger than them....
Surely the major phone manufacturers - would do something if consumers start asking them - is there child labour in your product - pls clean up your supply chain? Did it work for child labour in garments? Does anyone know?
