APPLE, SEAGATE AND SONY ERICSSON GO CHLORINE FREE

At least seven high-tech firms chlorine-treenow avoid the use of chlorine and other toxins that are linked to cancer, according to a new report by ChemSec, an environmental organization.

Apple established a program that restricts the use of nearly all bromine and chlorine compounds across all their product lines including iPhones and iPods, as well as computers. Other companies on the list include Sony Ericsson, which has established a full chemical inventory for all of their product lines, and can now boast that their products will have none of these toxins by the end of the year.

Other companies that are going chlorine-free include Seagate, DSM Engineering Plastics, Nan Ya (Taiwan), Indium, and Silicon Storage. You can see the report at cleanproduction.org and chemsec.org.
