Did you know?
When your Apple product is no longer the shiny new device you once loved, it’s best to dispose of them in the right way. States like Washington, Oregon, Texas, Maryland, Minnesota, California, and Maine have laws in place that guide how individuals can dispose of their unwanted electronic devices. In others, however, you can still throw your electronic gadgets in the trash leading to various environmental issues.
- Batteries contain heavy metals that can leach from solid waste landfills into the soil, groundwater, and surface water
- Dry cell batteries contribute 88% of the total mercury and 50% of the cadmium in the municipal solid waste stream
- Batteries contain strong corrosive acids that can burn your eyes and skin
Just transitioning from PC to Apple can help alleviate some of these issues: Apple uses smaller, thinner and lighter materials to produce their products. For instance, the MacBook Pro features an innovative unibody design, which replaces dozens of parts with a single piece of recyclable aluminium. From the glass, plastic, metal, paper and ink, Apple considers the environmental impact in all aspects of their production process.
Efficient packaging helps Apple pack more computers in every shipment, which in turn reduces overall emissions. Packaging for the 13” MacBook Pro is 41% smaller than the previous generation MacBook. This frees space on every shipping pallet, which means more computers are shipped on each plane and truck.
Apple spends time designing software and hardware that maximizes power management and efficiency in every product. A Mac mini uses as little as a quarter of the power consumed by a standard 60W light bulb. This makes it the most energy-efficient desktop computer in the world!
All Apple facilities use energy-efficient lighting and feature motion sensors for automatic light shutoff. This has saved over two million kilowatt-hours of electricity since 2006. Many of their facilities use renewable energy and Apple plans to have their Elk Grove facility operating entirely on renewable energy by the end of 2009. Employees are provided alternative transportation options. Each day, up to six hundred employees ride their free bio-diesel commuter coaches.
