The environmental protection group Greenpeace hung a large banner at Dell’s Round Rock headquarters Wednesday morning, saying the company hadn’t kept its promise of eliminating certain chemicals from its products.
Greenpeace claims that Dell promised to eliminate chemical byproducts such as PVC plastic and brominated flame retardants. The company has pushed that deadline back to 2011.
The banner, addressing CEO and founder Michael Dell, proclaimed “Michael, what the Dell? Design out toxics!” It was hung by climbers Wednesday morning and removed by workers a few hours later.
