GREENPEACE SAYS HP = HARMFULL PRODUCT

    Greenpeace rounds on Hewlett Packard
    No fags, lead free, flying high no more…
    December 2005
    MAKER of printer ink HP has found itself on the receiving end of a protest by Greenpeace over its ‘harmful products’.
    Greenpeace
    camped outside Hewlett-Packard’s Palo Alto headquarters carrying signs
    and launching a blimp with the words ‘HP = Harmful Products’ to all who
    could see.
    They also ran an FM radio station that could only be heard near the company’s site.
    Greenpeace
    is complaining that the outfit uses toxic materials in its computers
    and other products cannot be disposed of without hurting the
    environment.
    Although HP banned carbon monoxide fumes caused by its many employees smoking, that clearly was not enough for Greenpeace.
    David
    Lear, who has the unfortunate title of HP’s vice president of
    environmental and social responsibility, said the company was looking
    into alternative materials.He told the Mercury News that HP had already
    changed some of its practices to be more environmentally friendly,
    including removing lead from its products worldwide.
    But then it can’t sell the lead based products in Europe which is why Intel is suddenly producing “lead free” chipsets.
