Conflict free phones

By: nicolajgale | 26-12-2019 11:13

At present The Phone Coop is the only supplier to offer their customers 'conflict-free' phones in the form of the Fairphone. This is a phone from which all the materials which go to make it up come from sources which aren't in current conflict zones or subject to human rights abuses. Many of the materials which go into making up mobile phones come from regions in the world where land is in dispute, in a state of warfare or human rights abuses against workers and the civilian population are regularly reported.

It would be good to see Giff Gaff support projects which provide us with conflict-free mobile phones for those of us who want a more ethical way to stay connected.

Credit needs to go to the Phone Coop for putting the idea of conflict-free phones to the fore and providing an alternative, and it would be great to see other providers, including GiffGaff follow suit

Yes. Fairphone are a great organisation and should be supported across the telecoms industry to push for widespread change. I had my Fairphone V.1 for 7 years and the new Fairphone 3 model is a modular design which can be repaired and updated without buying a whole new handset

An excellent idea. As was said these precious metals cause worker abuse and even war. We must all make a stand against it. Well done giffgaff.
