In recent weeks Apple has been making headlines for its policies pertaining to the environment – however not all of them are good. First, Apple touted the energy efficiency of its new iPad, promoting that it costs just $1.36 to charge an iPad for a year. But just yesterday, it was announced that Apple has made a huge shift in its environmental policies and exited the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) register that rates the environmental impact of products based on product lifetime, toxicity of materials, and whether components and packaging can be recycled or not.
