Apple Being Green

Being an electronic recycling company, we see a lot of Apple devices. That’s not surprising since they manufacture millions of products. What is surprising is that Apple in ranked 48th Greenest Companies of America by Newsweek.

Here are a few facts from the yourenergy blog “HOW APPLE BECAME ONE OF THE GREENEST COMPANIES IN AMERICA”, proving Apple’s accelerating move toward being green:

The iPad Air uses 31 percent fewer materials than the original iPad

  • The current iMac is made with 68 percent fewer materials than the first version
  • The Mac Pro requires 74 percent fewer materials than its predecessor
