Last week, there’s a protest against Dell by Greenpeace. In the activity, Greenpeace hanged a banner on the wall of the general headquarter, said that Michael, what the dell? Design out toxics! It is said that the products such as dell laptop battery are with harmful chemical substances.
As to Dell, it is claimed that some toxics like PVC plastic and BFPs are contained in the dell ac adapter, battery and other accessories. Although Dell is the first company to give the promise, it cannot escape from criticizing.
As far as I know, the activity organized by Greenpeace is to popularize a guide for electronics to go green which is released these days. The guide is including the standard of the original materials, burning point and so on.
It is because of this reason that Greenpeace has release a plan about recycling of new dell products. Such plans have been held before, which are to recycle and retread the toxic products. However, they haven’t produced a lasting effect to us.
Furthermore, other companies begin to cancel the sales of the toxic products including acer laptop battery, nokia cell phone and so on. In fact, nearly all electronic products are with a bit hazardous substances. Merely, ones of less harmful ingredients are better.
Anyway, except for the OEM manufacturers, the users are also the key factors to environmental protections. If the products are not recycled properly by users, the pollution will be even more serious. Therefore, at the same time of purchasing a green product, it is more important to pay close attention to the recycling. It is the efforts from all of us that makes the life better than ever.
