Apple Carbon Footprint

Apple is always known for his environment friendly products, even in one of the Greenpeace forum, apple was praised for its environment friendly products, and how Apple is managing its Carbon footprint.

But from my opinion, this is partially correct. In order to support my argument, just check the Apple Store at Bahnofstrasse, Zurich on Sunday evening. You will be amazed to know that, every electronic and electrical equipment in the store is working 24 hrs. Such kind of electric usage on a sunday, is certainly not an environmental friendly step by Apple Inc.

So, from my opinion Apple should again re-look at its environment friendly strategies, so that it can try to reduce its Carbon footprint, and just like its admired for its innovative products, it should also be admired for its environment friendly strategies.
