Hewlett-Packard, the company singled out for its failure to remove dangerous chemicals from computers, has launched an 'almost toxic-free' product.
Back in July 2009, Greenpeace protested outside the company's global headquarters in California after it postponed its 2007 commitment to phase out dangerous substances such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from its computer products.
However, HP has now launched a PC virtually free of PVC and brominated flame retardants.
Greenpeace said the apparent change of heart by HP showed 'the positive effects campaigning and consumer pressure can have on large multinational companies.'
