"No reuse. No parts harvesting. No resale."

This is Apple's position, according to this sobering article by Jason Koebler for Motherboard. Even more troubling: Apple seems to be forcing its third party recyclers to shred all product collected through its programs - not just Apple product.

Sage's opinion on this should surprise no one: we're against it because it's simply wasteful. It's also lame. Get with it, Apple! Reuse is sexy and cosmic.
