Guardian blogger Kevin Anderson's article How green are your gadgets? took me over to the latest Greenpeace report Nintendo, Microsoft and Philips flunk toxic test, based on their Greener Electronics Guide (pictured).
"The Greener Electronics Guide is our way of getting the electronics industry to face up to the problem of e-waste. We want manufacturers to get rid of harmful chemicals in their products. We want to see an end to the stories of unprotected child labourers scavenging mountains of cast-off gadgets created by society's gizmo-loving ways. The Guide ranks companies according to their policies and practices on toxic chemicals and takeback. Along with mobile phone and personal computer companies, we've now added the biggest makers of TVs and games consoles. Old TVs are a large part of e-waste and the games console market is one of the fastest growing in consumer electronics." - Greenpeace.
