Ahead of Earth Day this Sunday (April 22), Apple stores across the world have changed the leaf in their logo to green in celebration of the day. Apple has been doing this for the last few years to help create awareness about Earth Day among the general public.
Depending on the time zone, Apple stores have already turned the leaf in their logo green or would be doing so within the next few hours. Apple retail employees are also wearing green t-shirts today to celebrate Earth Day.
Just yesterday, Apple provided details about Daisy — its latest disassembly robot aimed at recycling components from old iPhones — to celebrate Earth Day. However, Greenpeace called out Apple for releasing another recycling robot instead of releasing products that last longer.
Apple is among the very few tech giants out there to have done a lot for the environment and ensured that its carbon footprint is curtailed. The company ensures that its packages are environmentally friendly, and this year, it also announced that its facilities across the world are now powered by 100 percent clean energy.
Apple has also announced a new Activity Challenge for Earth Day for Apple Watch owners. The activity challenges them to do 30+ mins of exercise on Earth Day which will unlock an eco-friendly animated sticker pack.
