Green comes in many different shades. And we know that companies
exploit their green initiatives for marketing purposes in every way
they can these days. Apple has not been known for being especially
green so far and seems to be trailing the trend overall. That became
somewhat apparent when we wrote about green power purchases yesterday

There is no day without some news about how many emissions are caused by a
certain circumstance in our lives. So, it was just a matter of time
when we would get some indication of how virtual spam is polluting our
