HP, Lenovo and Dell Get An E-Waste Penalty Point

Greenpeace has put out an updated guide to greener electronics that bashes HP, Lenovo and Dell over the head pretty hard for not cleaning up their act environmentally. Oddly enough, although Nintendo is dead last on the list (again) and makes more consoles than any other company on the planet, they were not even mentioned in the article.

HP, Lenovo and Dell had promised to eliminate vinyl plastic (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from their products by the end of 2009. Now they've told us that they won't make it this year. The phase-out of toxic substances is an urgent priority to help tackle the growing tide of e-waste. Still, producers only go green when they feel public and consumer pressure to do so. That's why we campaign.
