Apparently Greenpeace has taken a dislike to Apple and is calling for change with their impression of the Apple homepage. Calling them “Poison Apples”, they say that Apple continues to use hazardous substances in their products that other companies have abandoned, and that these chemicals end up being dropped off in third world countries rather than being recycled. They are asking Apple to:
- Remove the worst toxic chemicals from all their products and production lines.
- Offer and promote free “take-back” for all their products everywhere they are sold.
Considering Apple’s change to smaller and generally less packaging, I think they are taking steps in the right direction, and more environmentally friendly products are always a plus, I just question Greenpeace’s targeting of Apple specifically instead of the tech industry in general. They did do a pretty good job of mocking up an Apple homepage though, I’ll give them that.
