Is Apple as environmentally friendly as they’d like you to believe? It doesn’t appear so…
According to a recent article by Kyle Wiens of iFixit, the tech giant Apple, along with Cisco, Xerox and IBM, were all quietly BLOCKING a highly anticipated recycling law that would help REDUCE electronic waste and allow technicians to FIX old electronic devices that the companies no longer supported. Right now, big tech manufacturers hold back parts and repair information making it difficult for old devices to be fixed.
What does that mean? It means that YOU will more than likely end up buying a NEW electronic device, AND your old one may probably end up in a landfill. If you don’t send it to the right place to be recycled, toxins will leak into the water, earth and…you get the idea.
We hope you’ll take a moment to read Kyle’s SERIOUSLY eye-opening article at the link below and see the shocking behind the scenes news yourself that:
#1- Manufacturers like Apple present a GREEN agenda to the public, but behind the scenes it’s all about the money. Apple and other big tech firms shot down an important recycling legislation that would allow ‘Right to Repair’ that would help reduce and control ewaste.
#2- Apples #1 customer is the Millenial. Does Apple take for granted these young professionals don’t know what’s really going on?
#3- Recycling isn’t free, and it’s currently paid for with YOUR municipal tax dollars.
Please read Kyle Wiens’ article ‘A Poisoned Apple’ now and learn for yourself what Apple and the other Big Tech firms want to hide from you…
