Apple is now buying back old Macs, iPhone and iPad

Green Apple

Apple is one of the greenest tech companies in the world, they are always pushing their product to be as green as possible. Not just making green products, Apple tries to minmum the CO by reduce weight of shipping weight and reducing carbon footprint. They tries to encourage recycling by recycling all Apple products for free.

Reuse and Recycle

But today Apple pushed recycling to the new limit and launches Reuse and Recycle program. Yes, Apple will buy back workable old Apple or non-Apple product back. They will provide free shipping and free packaging for your old Notebook, Desktop, iPad and iPhone! This is a pretty nice service, although you might be able to get better resale price on ebay or other auction sites, but it can not be easier to sell your products back to Apple.

One important note is that all value of your product will be translated to an Apple Gift Card of the same value. Since it is Apple Gift Card, you will be only able to use in Apple Store or buy Apps/music in Apple’s App Store or iTunes.

So if you have any old Apple products or PC, check out Apple’s Reuse and Recycle Program.


How GREEN is our iPhones?

To celebrate Earth day, geekaphone created a very well done infographics to show how green is our iPhones. To be honest, I feel that Apple is already one of the most environmental conscious company around. Most of their products have 5 star on green-ness. If you look at the info-graphics, you will see that Apple is still trying their best make their next product greener, look at iPhone 3G and iPhone 4, iPhone 4 emit 18% less CO2.
