Paints and inks: Our paints and inks don’t contain cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel or lead.

Packaging: The packaging we use does not contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and there is no intentional addition of lead, mercury, cadmium or hexavalent chromium.

Enclosure plastics: There are no brominated flame retardants in the enclosure plastics for Apple products.
