Greenpeace is at Apple's throat again, telling Apple to make the www.aumm.nl iPhone greener. Just last May Apple promised to http://www.blickueberdenzaun.de/woman-and-levitra remove brominated fire retardants (BFRs) and PVC from all new products by 2008, but the iPhone which was released a month later actually has both. While it's not 2008 yet, I can see how Greenpeace is not happy with Apple's decision.
Their report, cleverly named Missed call: the iPhone's hazardous chemicals, details that the parts they tested do meet European RoHS requirements, but still contain BFRs and PVC. Additionally, Greenpeace makes a good point that even Nokia has gone PVC-free already, with Sony Ericcson and Motorola making strides in eliminating toxins in their phones.
I know that electronics are a sore spot for us EcoGeeks, but while it looks like Apple isn't doing a perfect job, the competition isn't perfect either, making it a tough call. Go read the report and you be the judge.
