Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

Just convince my 2 and 3 year old daughters and my wife that we all have to walk 12 miles, one way to the grocery store this weekend and 12 miles back with all the bags.

You're thinking inside the box of a motorized livestyle. I've gone car-less for ten months after moving close to a nice local downtown area full of family shops and small businesses, one of which had my job location. You don't go on mass grocery trips and haul a big load home. You buy a little along the way every day. Now, this means you have to make deliberate lifestyle decisions, but why is the cost of a car, gas, maintenance, insurance, and repair for the privilege of commuting through traffic important to you?
