Apple to make all products from recycled materials
Apple in its 2017 Environment Responsibility Report says that it will start making devices entirely from recycled materials, including aluminum, copper, tin, and tungsten.
Apple’s 2017 Environment Responsibility Report says - the company now powers its facilities by 96 per cent renewable energy, up from 93 per cent last year. And, seven of its major suppliers have promised to use renewable energy by the end of next year.
Apple shifting from mining to the use of recycled materials is noteworthy. The company in the past came under fire for various issues relating to mining. Just over a year ago, an investigation claimed that Apple’s battery suppliers were using cobalt mined by child labour. It was also reported at one point that Apple was using tin from illegal mines, according to media reports.
