Shining green lights on Apple's iconic 5th Avenue store

'Tis the season for stockings stuffed with ipods, and Macs nestled under the tree. But all is not well in Whoville, and there's a grinch of a surprise under Apple's skin: toxic chemicals. As last year's gifts get tossed to make way for shiny new Apples, they will likely find their way to developing countries, where children of all ages will unwrap and unleash the toxic chemicals within.

The (Green) Big Apple

Well, there's no place like New York to light up the night with a holiday wish. We've been telling Apple to go green for years, and last night, more than 60 activists took to the streets of New York to shine green lights on Apple's iconic 5th Avenue store.

Greenpeace elves danced around the store and worked their magic to turn Apple's store green, as thousands of busy holiday shoppers looked on. Our holiday wish list is simple. All we want from Steve Jobs is a green Apple.
