Earlier this week we reported that Apple’s products were removed from the EPEAT’s green product list due to different directions the Cupertino company were taking with their electronics. Well, it looks like their situation has reversed. According to reports online, all of Apple’s eligible products are now back on EPEAT’s list. Apple was hit with an “eco-backlash” when their products were removed, and it looks like they’ve changed their minds about being inconsistent with EPEAT’s requirements. Talk about a quick turnaround.
Regardless of Apple’s stance when it comes to being environmental-friendly or not – I doubt it would have done much to affect its sales. Nokia has very green phones yet they haven’t seen the same amount of success that Apple has had over the past few years. How many of you care about how green a product is before you decide to purchase it?
