It is amazing how the neat, nifty electronics that we use leave a huge, significant impact on our environment. It may not be visible to us but a detailed research sure can tell about how green, or not, a piece of hardware is. has now created an infographic, based on the research of the company, which details about the footprint left by an iPad on the environment.

According to the infographic, it is quite shocking what an adverse impact the iPad leaves on the environment. For instance, the CO2 emissions that are caused by a single iPad is equal to the CO2 emissions that are produced by a long drive of 515 miles!

What is even more disappointing is the fact that the CO2 emissions caused by a new iPad are far more than those caused by older models of the tablet. iPad, the first model of the tablets, results in some 130 kg of CO2 while that emissions caused by iPad 2 are down to 105 kg. But come the new iPad, and this average is raised to a whooping 180 kg!

And while those are the stats related to a single tablet, when we clock out the average of the CO2 emissions caused by all the 55 million iPad tablets that Apple has sold so far, they are equal to 7,590,000 kg of CO2 emissions. This is roughly the equivalent of CO2 emissions caused by 1.2 million cars in one whole year!

Apple does offer a recycling program in some 95% of the countries in which Apple products are sold. But that is just not enough. In fact, Apple is also working on a 100 acre solar facility which will produce clean power for the company. That, again, will result in a mere fraction of Apple’s power sources to be clean while the majority of the rest come from coal power, the dirtiest of power resources.

Like we said earlier, Apple is rich enough to resort to 100% clean power as well as more environment-friendly products. And it is about time Apple spent all that cash on ensuring this.
