Let’s save the planet… Stop buying Apple products!
Nothing better to do than starting the week by Trolling?? Well, no! Apple is doing everything they can to promote the image of a “clean” company, with the help of large marketing budgets and products with superb looks, and you have to admit the Apple products are nice… Apple built themselves the image of a “clean” company at the bleeding edge of technology… Nevertheless, Apple appears much less clean when you look closely at their manufacturing processes or how they recycle the products that have reached the end of their life span.
As we consume more and more electronic products, their recycling is becoming a real concern. GreenPeace has looked into this problem and provides a study that highlights the good and bad manufacturers in terms of environment, while offering recommendations.
GreenPeace had already raised the alarm this summer and many manufacturers decided to also look into the problem. This explains why companies such as Lenovo go from “Very bad” to “Average plus”. While almost every company improved their position (except LG and Samsung), Apple still stays far behind with a miserable score.
So yes, I’m not hiding the fact that I’m pro PC/Intel/Microsoft, but that’s not the point. I like the Apple products and find them nice and efficient (a Mac Book Pro with XP runs faster than any other PC), but Apple’s snobbery, their closed mind (look at all the stupid lawsuits they brought against some people), and their after-sales service bordering on fraud (Apple is asking my father 350.00 euros to change the hard disk of his Mac Mini that is not under warranty anymore… 350.00 euros for a hard disk that can be changed in 20mn? you gotta be kidding Apple!). Facing such unacceptable behavior (customers are not cows you can milk forever), I couldn’t shut up when I received a link pointing to GreenPeace where we can see that this company could care less about the environment…
If you own a Mac, and you like their software and hardware, I’m happy for you, and even happier to know that a company offers products that work for many people. But I beg you, do whatever you can to force/help Apple become greener and help us protect our environment! Changing the world doesn’t take much when everybody does their part…
