If you happened to catch Apple‘s September “Let’s Rock” event on Tuesday, you might have heard CEO Steve Jobs talking about the steps that the company is taking to decrease the impact their products have on the environment. “We want to be just really environmentally sensitive with these products,” Jobs said, “We think these new Nanos are the cleanest, toxic-free iPods we’ve ever built.” This claim can be made because of the redesigned highly recyclable aluminum casing, arsenic-free glass, and the lack of PVC, Mercury, and Brominated flame-retardant within the iPod nanos. Also, the redesigned minimalist packaging reduces the amount of waste, and shipping space, that’s needed in order to get the iPod into your hands. If all of the cool new features didn’t give you reason enough, now is definitely the greenest time to pick up a new iPod.
