quote: All of the Apple designed circuit boards, which are the vast majority of circuit boards in the unit, are Bromide Flame Retardent-free and PVC-free.
quote: Greenpeace also criticized Apple for Job's unfulfilled promise in 2007 in an open letter (PDF), in which he stated that Apple would eliminate all BFRs and PVC plastics from its product lines by the end of 2008.
quote: Nobel-prize-winning environmental activist and former Vice President Al Gore
quote: And it's no surprise that Jobs is friendly with Gore: Gore is a member of the board of directors of Apple. You'd think Greenpeace would have noticed this and therefore showered Apple with praise. Or perhaps because Al's a company man, they expected Apple to do better environmentally than their rivals, not be equal, hence all the low marks.
