Macworld has spotted a new page
over on Apple's website highlighting their dedication
to making their products as environmentally healthy as possible. We've seen this pitch from Apple within the past few years
-- they've recently slimmed down their packaging and started using recyclable materials
in making their computers. It's pretty interesting to see them making such a push on this issue
, but then again it not only helps them sell computers (assuming they don't have to raise prices too high due to the new policies), but of course helps the culture and the Earth at large in terms of making sure our environmental footprints are as small as possible.
The new site includes information about the impact of Apple's products both during manufacture and during usage, as well as reports on product performance
, as well as a blog on what they're doing lately
. They also have a link to their recycling program so that when you're done with whatever Apple products you're using, you can make sure that those recyclable products are actually recycled.
Pretty good deal all around, and good for Apple to make it clear how committed they are to this issue and acting on it.
