Apple says "goodbye" to prominent eco-friendly standard."

By TonyBerkman, published on Jul 10, 2012

Apple surprised environmental groups and consumers with a sudden withdrawal from a well established and "prominent" green products registry, says the San Jose Mercury News.

Apple will no longer be conforming to the standards set by EPEAT, the eco-friendly certifier backed by the EPA. "Apple has said that their design direction is not compatible with EPEAT standards," says EPEAT boss Robert Frisbee. "It's kind of odd since they've helped design" the standards.

...State Building, Jones Beach, the Brooklyn Bridge, the United Nations Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island Ferry, and Coney Island.

The discovery of the wonders of the Automat adds it to the top of the list. The children begin saving their nickels in a tin can labeled “Apple Pie at the Automat.”

In early spring, when the freezing cold of winter begins to thaw, we hear a loud thump from my dad's room. We rush upstairs and find him lying on the floor.

He has suffered a stroke.

In the following months, as summer approaches, any mention of New... (more)

Eva and her spoiled Apple

...the door because I changed my mind as soon as he walked in. I can tell you about how Mr2BIG turned out to be 2BORING and how a potential Adam mentally slapped me in the face by introducing me to his friends as ‘just like my sister’. Oh well. I will not give up on finding Adam in the Big Apple and despite some juicy apples here and there, I will admit to be a little lost when finding my way to paradise. I note, “to be continued” in my pink logbook and because NYC is all about being on a mission, I will now focus on finding a room to live in. You know, a room where all the... (more)

... would expect an individual to keep busy, regardless of whether the returns are fruitful or not. Keeping one self occupied is the biggest antidote to sloth and you will have nothing to lose except that feeling of inadequateness and laziness, if, it ever decides to cross your path.

Braeburn Apple

The forbidden, or should I say foreboding, fruit variety of the second kind is the Braeburn Apple. A deliciously crisp and firm apple with alternating red and orange-yellow streaks is a fantastic fruit when chilled. The crispness intensifies with the cold and you can feel the bite much... (more)

...hiding it in a secret place, saving it up for my mom’s and my escape. As I rush down the stairs and stand in the same spot, the fat monster makes his way back up the steps, running out of breath. He goes to the kitchen grabs a beer and no one says a single word more. My mom gives me an apple from the fridge, it's red like blood and wounded so bad. I can feel the bruises. Even fruits get hurt so bad that their worth seems cheap. Who wants an apple that is so darn weak? An apple should be strong, and bold, hard to the core and beautiful for show. This apple though went through ... (more)
