Clash of the consoles

in Activism, Recycling, Toxic World


Games consoles have featured on thousands of letters to Santa this year, replacing many older consoles that will end up in the mountains of e-waste that are growing by the day. Now Greenpeace is pitting console against console in their new campaign to convince manufacturers to clean up their act. They’re targeting gamers, the people who hold the controllers, to play a new game. The game is to let Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo know that they want clean, green games consoles, to see whether they can affect a better outcome in the real world. Greenpeace want these companies to remove toxic chemicals from the consoles, and to take back and recycle their products once they become obsolete. Not such a big ask when PC and mobile phone manufacturers are already doing it. Don’t let them leave games consoles in the environmental dark ages.

Lets play!
