Greenpeace has started a campaign to bring awareness to Mac Computers about the toxic waste that comes from their tossed computer parts. In China, for example, children wade through mountains of computer parts filled with toxic materials such as lead and mercury finding items their families can resell while plastic cables and chords burn nearby. Local water sources are also made undrinkable due to heavy metal content.
So Greenpeace wants the help of the people like you! Rather than tying themselves to the side of Macs headquarters, they have decided to give Mac the benefit of the doubt and use creative measures by the public to get their attention. On the Greenpeace website you can take part in letting Apple know about the effect they are having on the Environment and on hundreds of peoples lives. Check it out, it’s rather fun!

Greenpace already apologized for unfairly singling out Apple
Good point mkb
Also, it’s worth noting that Dell has a new recycling program.
Thats cool Greenpeace takes responsibility for singling out Apple. I think that the reason for the singling out is likely due to the fact that they thought it would be more likely to get a response from them because they are so forward thinking and cool. Yay progress!
I think Greenpeace just wanted to get in the papers.
