Conflict Free ____

A video I came across, Peace is the New Frontier, looks at the conflict in the Congo and talks about what we could do to stop it.

One of the last elements in the video talks about an element of social responsibility “conflict free electronics”.  While the target of the video (and the people who will pick it up) are clearly those who are connected online and likely to be using those plundered natural resources this may become a good example of collaborative consumers calling for companies to have strong corporate social responsibility in terms of what and how they produce things.

Being a poorly understood topic about an isolated faraway place that doesn’t immediately impact our lives may mean this one falls below the radar…

But maybe it won’t if a few of us jump on.
