Know Where Your Mica is Coming From
Mica is found in cosmetics, electrical products like toasters or hair-dryers, and has become a resource of choice in electronics, such as drones, phones, high-res cameras and equipment that requires important data storage capacity. While there are many Mica mines that are operating lawfully, many others are not. Unsafe working conditions plague mica mines and cause 10 to 20 deaths every month.

What Are the Effects of Unregulated Mica?
Demand for natural mica has been at a steady increase, and mica mines are stepping up production. However, this increased production comes with more and more human rights violations and dismissed safety precautions. Thousands of women and children as young as 4 years old are exploited to keep labor costs close to nothing. Without equipment, mining is performed by hand. Miners face danger and health hazards daily and suffer life-threatening injuries.
