Apple says EPEAT environmental certification is behind the times, San Francisco plans to ban its products anyway
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 11, 2012, 5:00 AM
Still, EPEAT is required for federal and other contracts, so Apple might lose out on some business opportunities with this dropping of the industry certification scheme. The environmental department of the San Francisco municipality, for example, is planning to send letters to all 50 agencies and departments there that Apple's products no longer qualify for purchase with government funds, and will make applying for a waiver from this ban a "long" and "onerous" process for each request.

I cant believe Apple is really this arrogant. Although...I have been keeping up with their lawsuits...lol. Maybe they are. And the iPhone just started getting picked by the govt in the last few years. Amazing.

look at the comments made by apple fans, some of them even said that he doesn't care about the environment, questioning what the environment has given him and that his macbook pro is all he needs to survive.
that's awesome, right?! I will trade the air, water, produce, everything! just for a hard-to-repair-and-recycle macbook pro..
typical arrogance of iFans..

"Apple products are superior in other important environmental areas not measured by EPEAT, such as removal of toxic materials" I guess this was not read by fandroids everywhere

Except those toxic materials include the battery, which is GLUED INTO THE f**kING COMPUTER. Apple saying it doesn't make it true.
