Greenpeace Ranks Apple Highest Among Tech Companies
Given their long and storied feud, you would think Captain Ahab would have a better chance than Apple of being accepted by Greenpeace. Believe it or not, the impossible has actually happened.

Indeed, Greenpeace has ranked Apple highest on the list of eco-conscious tech companies. In fact, they got a perfect score thanks to their commitment to eliminate all toxic PVC and BFRs from their product line. Has Apple finally got the Greenpeace endangered species-protected monkey off its back?

2. They took their criticism to heart.
I bet Al Gore helped Apple turn green.
