Greenpeace, as the name suggests, seeks to make the natural world a better place for everyone. They recently noticed that console manufacturers certainly aren't doing a good job of helping the environment. And so, they started up the "Clash of the Consoles" website, which jests at the environmental unfriendliness of a typical console. The campaign's main purpose is to raise awareness of the toxic chemicals inside the typical console (such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)), and entice manufacturers to make better consoles. Please read the source article for a detailed list of the exact problems each console has, and what each manufacturer is doing about the alleged toxicity of each console.
