Apple is apparently right up there with whale hunters and baby seal clubbers when it comes to the environment. The company is, "now in last place among the 14 largest electronics firms in committing to phase out harmful and toxic substances and instituting recycling programs of products that have reached the end of their lifecycles," according to Greenpeace. So a cadre of e-waste activists are going to hold a demonstration at the Apple flagship store on 5th Ave. in Manhattan today at 6pm. Seems no matter how many (product) Red iPods Apple sells, there will still be toxic chemicals leeching out of my new MacBook Pro and into the bloodstream of third-world garbage pickers. Happy Christmas!
