How Green is the iPad? [Infographic]

Posted April 20, 2012 at 6:38pm by iClarified
Sortable breaks down the environmental footprint of the iPad in a new infographic spotted by Mashable.

Specifically, the CO2 emissions from one iPad equal the CO2 output of a 515-mile drive. And the new iPad is responsible for more CO2 emissions than its older brothers: The original iPad averaged 130 kg of CO2, and the iPad 2 averaged 105 kg. The new iPad emits 180 kg of C02. When you average out the emissions from all 55 million iPads sold (7,590,000 kg CO2), it equals the emissions of 1.2 million cars in one year.

Who cares? I sure don't. Cars don't even equal to what a jet burns in 1 hr. yet were conserving gallons. Jets burn 1000 gallons like nothing. You'll never save this planet. It's already been saved. Billions of years ago. Green this green that. The only green I need in life is money and freakin green grass. Everything else is bull$hit. OUT!!!

Mmm, can't figure out why people loo for any tiny thing to talk bad about apple products, what about all other iPad imitations or iPhone imitations like the one using Android, are they made with a magic wound?

"The new iPad emits 180 kg of C02" Really? Really? I have yet to find its exhaust pipe. Or perhaps the gasses come out of the tiny holes by the speaker grill? A lot of articles on here just make no sense.

It's referring to the emissions the factory's put out to produce each iPad.

Well, that's what I thought - but actually it isn't, it's the combined total of manufacture, shipping, use throughout its lifetime and recycling. I just get fed up of reading articles where the content isn't correctly worded! (I'm a teacher, I can't help it)

Well done Chris noticing the 'obvious'. One of the few times I see someone observing and pointing out something usefull for or against an article of iClarified (and you being a teacher makes your opinion more 'valid' ;)
