Apple on schedule to stop the use of mined minerals and metals

Apple is aspiring to become the first big computer manufacturer to only used recycled source materials in future. To fulfill Steve Jobs´ wishes the company has drawn up a schedule. The first step will be to only use aluminium from old computers. According to insiders Apple devices which are handed in will become the source of minerals and metals. Part of the plan are recycling schemes which are currently not yet very popular because the value on the open market is bigger or the emotional attachment to a device is stronger. But the stream of recycled devices is slowly becoming bigger and, who knows, there may come a Device as a Service offer which will have so many advantages to both the user and Apple that mining for metals and minerals will no longer be necessary.
