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.

Start acting like you really believe what you are saying. Live off the grid.

No not just off the grid, you need to live without consuming any manufactured goods or argricultural products harvested with manufactured goods such as threshing machines, tractors or even a simple blade. Seriously how much pollution goes into the production of every day gardening tools used by the so-called organic farmers?

You need to raise all your own food and make all your own tools out of wood and stone. Arg! Wait if you did that you would have to pull vegetation out of some small plot of land and plant your own vegetation and that would disrupt the natural order of that plot of land. So instead you can only gather wild berries and nuts and maybe the occasional fruit from a tree. But don't deprive any other animals or insects from those things because that would also have an unnatural and negative impact on the environment.

Well ... good luck
