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.

Many are blaming Apple’s latest notebook computer, the retina-display MacBook Pro, for the decision to pull out of EPEAT. But as iPads continue to fly off the shelves around the world, it’s important for us to also ask, How Green is the iPad?
