Shoot: Toxics Action at Hewlett Packard in Utrecht the Netherlands

GP0STOGGZ
Greenpeace activists block the main entrance of the Hewlett Packard office in Utrecht with a wall of one thousand old HP computers. One of the toxics found in human blood, the brominated flame retardants (BFRs), is processed by HP in computers. Greenpeace states that a company, which keeps on using toxics and refuses to change to more clean alternatives, is irresponsible. Companies like Samsung, Puma and H&M have been willing to remove all toxics from their products, HP has stated however not to make any changes. Greenpeace urges Europe to make out a case for a strict REACH-legislation, the new European legislation for toxics, with a ban on the production and usage of toxics and an obliged change to non-toxic alternatives.
