Green my Apple 5 April , 2007

Posted by eugene in 6 Use Rights as Citizens & Consumers.


Greenpeace’s recent report, Guide to Greener Electronics, ranks electronic manufacturers based on their policy and practice for chemicals used in the products, and on producer responsibility for taking back discarded products and recycling. Companies ranked include Lenovo, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Dell, Samsung, Motorola, Fujitsu-Siemens, HP, Acer, Toshiba, Sony, LG Electronics, Panasonic and Apple. Apple stays in last place since the guide was launched in Dec 06. Read more at Greenpeace’s website.

To get Apple to go green, Greenpeace organised the “Green my Apple” campaign. The campaign encourages Apple fans to voice their views to Apple so that they can improve their environmental record. It is hoped that Apple would remove the worst toxic chemicals from their products, and offer take-back for their products everywhere they are sold.

If you are an Apple fan and own a Mac, iPod or iBook, do help to voice your concerns to Apple on their poor environmental performance and suggest that they do something about it. I personally know of many greenies who use Macs. You know who you are and what to do.
