Apple to Honor Earth Day 2014 at Retail Stores, Main Campus

Apple will be celebrating Earth Day 2014 next Tuesday, April 22 throughout its various retail locations and at its main campus, reports 9to5Mac.

The company will color its logos in green for the occasion, as employees will wear special shirts with an event planned at Apple's headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. Apple last celebrated Earth Day in 2006 by holding a free computer takeback program in honor of the event.

Apple has remained active in its environment efforts throughout the past few years, which include powering its data centers with 100% renewable energy, expanding its recycling program, and reporting on its carbon footprint. Last May, Apple also hired former Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson to lead the company's environmental responsibility efforts.

Environmental activist group Greenpeace also featured Apple as a "green energy innovator" in its latest report earlier this month, praising the company for its commitment to renewable energy after taking issues with previous efforts.

Look at all the admittedly beautiful but incredibly wasteful packaging on Apple products.
Such as?
Apple simplified their packaging pretty early while competitors had huge boxes.

This was wasteful (right):

I definitely support them for doing this... if I had billions of dollars lying around I'd want to put it towards something to better humanity. Right On Apple! Staying hungry, staying foolish, going green!

Glad to see them taking the lead on this. We take too much of our environment for granted.

Inhale the hype. Apple isn't taking a lead here except immaculate PR. All Fortune 100 companies have environmental/sustainability policies and especially tout their Eco stewardship.

Seriously?

Picking on Apple for wasteful packaging defeats the whole argument. Apple is not even in the top 90% of the offenders. When places like Greenpeace protest Apple, I lose all respect for Greenpeace's as an organization. Go after the real offenders that don't give a crap, not the companies that are trying.
