, they only take what everyone can read for themselves and then repackage it.
But then again, that's all Greenpeace does, as well - and you gotta start somewhere. So far, they're only volunteers, let's hope that they get bigger and can do in-depth analyses of the big manufacturers!

Yay, then it's only a matter of a few more years

And that brings me to my final gripe: If you want a quick reply from Fairphone, you've got to complain on their Facebook page. It sucks to resort to such measures, but apparently the publicity of it makes them reply on the same day
. So if @joemier
doesn't show up here next week, I'd be happy if someone could start bitching and moaning about it on their FB page...
