Enviromental Tablets – Apple Makes Being Green a Top Priority With Eco-Friendly iPads

January 29, 2010

The eco-friendly iPad has many assets that make it a great tablet for the environment. First of all, it will undoubtedly save quite a few trees from being chopped down because of its e-reader feature.

Another green attribute of the iPad is that it is highly recyclable according to Steve Jobs. He states that the iPad is arsenic-free, BFR-free, mercury-free and PVC-free, so it can follow Greenpeace’s Guide to Recycling Electronics. One more awesome aspect is that the battery life is 10 hours so the device doesn’t need to be hooked up to an outlet for a good period of time. The iPad’s 30-day standby battery life means that it hardly needs to be charged at night! My phone cannot even claim that and it does a whole lot less than the iPad.  Via: Luisa Amanda Gomes
