    Let
    this be a lesson to electronics companies everywhere: If you don’t heed
    demands to remove toxic materials from your products, Greenpeace is
    going to paint your roof.Luckily, they’ll use nontoxic finger paint.
    The negative advertising, visible to passing birds and helicopters,
    won’t last longer than the time it takes to power-wash it away.

    Unless someone snaps a picture. Or films it.
    It
    took about 10 minutes for a handful of activists to complete the
    mission, Greenpeace International toxics campaigner Casey Harrell said.
    Dressed in haz-mat suits and armed with motorized paint-sprayers, they
    scaled the building with industrial-strength ladders and blasted the
    words “hazardous products” on the roof of Hewlett-Packard’s Palo Alto
    headquarters. And they didn’t even get arrested.

    The action
    followed demands by Greenpeace that Hewlett-Packard fulfill a promise
    to stop using hazardous materials such as PVC plastic and brominated
    flame retardants, which have been linked to thyroid hormone disruption
    in animals.”Greenpeace will not stand idly by while companies that
    commit to environmentally responsible action backtrack on commitments,”
    Harrell said in a statement Tuesday. “As the number one seller of PCs
    worldwide, HP has both the responsibility and the ability to make sure
    the company no longer deserves the moniker ‘Hazardous Products.’ “HP
    said in a statement that the company was committed to eliminating 
    brominated flame retardants and PVC from its PC products by the end of
    2011, according to wire reports.
