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.

Dude... All of our progressive efforts to save the environment are nothing more than damaging it less. Anything else is just fixing past mistakes, and that's not something any consumer can hope to significantly participate in.

While I'm all for this avoidance of harmful chemicals and such I'd be a much bigger fan of consumers taking some responsibility and disposing of things properly. We have an entire generation who seems to think it's ok to just pile trash near the city.
