Conflict Minerals in Your Daily Life

More and more people have heard of conflict minerals, the ore extracted from the ground via unsafe and abusive labor conditions financing violent rebel groups and militias. However, few people fully understand quite how prevalent conflict minerals like tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold actually are in our consumer goods.

With this animated video commissioned by Intel and presented by Vice, we hope consumers can become more aware of the connection - and the responsibility - each one of us has to promoting peace and safety across the globe.

If you have the choice, please use your shopping dollars to support the participants of the DRC Conflict-Free Multi-Stakeholder Group. We are all working to make a difference for the people of the Congo and we need you to do your part as well!
