It's almost Thanksgiving, and you know what that means: arguments and bickering. Apple and Greenpeace are going at in style: hot on the heels of Apple's passive aggressive green MacBook ads, the environmental organization has released the latest version of its Guide to Greener Electronics which--and come on, are you really surprised?--shows Apple falling in the ranks despite its recent improvements.
Greenpeace gives Apple a 4.3 rating, slightly up from their 4.1
While Apple did get strong marks for phasing out PVC and BFR in its product lines as well as energy efficiency, those apparently weren't enough to offset their lack of progress in other areas. Look, clearly there're always more things a company could be doing, and as environemntally-friendly as companies might want to be, the process of manufacturing goods is always going to be a messy one at some level. Is continually sniping at them really going to make them work harder? I mean, just because they make a living writing things on the Internet doesn't mean they don't have a career, okay, mom?
Sorry. Just getting into the Thanksgiving spirit.
