We are grateful to Greenpeace for a new website urging Apple to be more green. Bear in mind, Greenpeace is picking on Apple for a reason: Apple is a cutting-edge, forward-thinking company that should be setting high standards for other technology companies. We couldn’t agree more.
We love Apple. Apple knows more about “clean” design than anybody, right? So why do Macs, iPods, iBooks and the rest of their product range contain hazardous substances that other companies have abandoned? A cutting edge company shouldn’t be cutting lives short by exposing children in China and India to dangerous chemicals. That’s why we Apple fans need to demand a new, cool product: a greener Apple.
