"Stop Benzene" petition
The solvent benzene is used in the production of smartphones and tablets for cleaning purposes at the end of the manufacturing process. A poisonous substance, its industrial use is banned in Switzerland. With its petition "Stop Benzene", the two charities Bread for All (Brot für Alle) and the Swiss Catholic Lenten Fund (Fastenopfer) are raising awareness of the risks of using benzene.
