Gallery II: Greenpeace

Earlier this week, Greenpeace promised to "green" the Apple Store San Francisco on Monday evening, following the group's inability to get booth at the Expo and a similar "greening" that the organization held at Apple's flagship retail store in New York City. Although the group promised more dramatic results, technical and logistical issues prevented the group from fully carrying out their greening. In December, Greenpeace ranked Apple as the worst technology company with regard to environmental issues following an update to its quarterly "Guide to Greener Electronics." Greenpeace activists on Monday were able to project large images on the walls adjacent to the San Francisco Apple Store to protest the company's use of toxic chemicals, but technical glitches prevented the group from carrying out their "greening" as planned.

    i'm impressed

    It doesn't really matter how Greenpeace's actions turned out. The fact that they promised a Greening of Apple makes it a success. Just like the computer companies in their 'report" - the top rated ones are the ones with the biggest promises, even if they never fulfill them.

    They were probably trying to use HP laptops, the ones Greenpeace praises because HP says they're built to last 6 years. Oops.
