Thursday evening, Dec 14, about 50 Greenpeace activists and their supporters converged at the Fifth Avenue Apple store to bring awareness to their Green My Apple campaign. Activists used giant flashlights--equal to 16 million candles--to shine green light onto the pristine glass cube. Green My Apple is a campaign that urges Apple to step up and create a green recycling program for their products, Macs, iPods, iBooks. "Right now, poisoned Aples full of chemicals like toxic flame retardants, and polyvinyl chloride are being sold worldwide. Then they're tossed, they usually end up at the fingertips of children in China, india and other developing world countries. They dismantle them for parts, and are exposed to a dangerous toxic cocktail that threatens their health and the environment," says a flyer handed out at the event.
