Centre for Evironmental Health joins hands with Greenpeace to slap Apple
The Centre for Environmental Health is sueing Apple based on the report by Greenpeace regarding the toxic chemicals found in the iPhone.
The Greenpeace report revealed that the iPhone contained two potentially harmful chemicals, toxic brominated compounds and hazardous PVC which contained a mixture of toxic phthalates.
Under California’s Proposition 65 law, all products containing phthalates, which are proven to be reproductive toxins, or carcinogens are required to carry a warning label.
The Centre for Environmental Health is insisting Apple make clear the fact that the their products are potentially harmful to the consumer but ideally wish for the company to redesign the iPhone as they claim it is not necessary for the product to contain the harmful chemicals.
