This year as Apple roles out the iPhone 3G you will see their environmental agreement come into play. Last year Steve Jobs promised a Greener Apple, and this year we will see that the packing supplies have changed for the iPhone. Now, the iPhone will be shipped in a starch paper tray, made mostly of potato starches.
These trays are manufactured by a Dutch company named PaperFoam, whose CEO just announced that Apple ordered “millions of PaperfFam packages” for its new 3G iPhone. By doing this Apple reducing the carbon footprint of the iPhone by at least 90 percent, which are 100 percent biodegradable and made from natural resources.
You may already know of this company for being the producers for packages for Motorola and the first generation iPod video and iPod nano.
I look forward to ripping through my 100 percent biodegradable packaging to get to the brand new iPhone 3G it will house on July 11th!
