Link: New U.S. Law Requires Electronics Makers to Disclose Conflict Mineral Use

Tucked into the financial reform bill that passed this week is a provision many sustainable electronics advocates will be happy about. Publicly-traded companies and electronics corporations will now be required to reveal whether or not they use “conflict-free” minerals. Even though that means they can still use the materials, they have to be forthright in stating such, which will put a serious damper on any new product releases that have to state, “Yep, materials in this cell phone helped fund rape and war.”
