Apple exec on making a completely green iPhone and tackling child labour concerns in supply chain

Australia News:

The company wants to use 100 per cent recycled and renewable materials like bioplastics to make its iPhones, Macbooks and other consumer electronics in a bid to reduce its reliance on raw materials.

“What we’ve committed to is 100 per cent recycled material to make our products, or renewable material,” Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, Lisa Jackson, told “We’re working like gangbusters on that.”

While some of Apple’s efforts are described as “nonsense”, they may be the only major company on the planet at least making the attempt to be as green as possible.
