Today, April 22nd, the Earth’s Day (Earth Day). Apple usually takes some actions, such as painting part of its logo green on store fronts, unifying its team with green T-shirts, launching challenges for the Apple Watch and more.
As we are in the middle of a pandemic and social isolation is necessary, these actions have been put aside this year. But that does not mean that the date will go blank for Apple.
On YouTube, she published a video entitled “Celebrate Earth Day”. In it, the company invites people to participate in a fun activity with Oliver Jeffers (artist, illustrator and writer) and the Apple Education team.
The idea is to take a picture of the environment around you and draw the world you want to see over the image. Use your favorite drawing app on the iPad; then share using hashtag #EveryoneCanCreate to inspire others.
In the App Store, the company published four highlights that tell stories related to the planet and or give tips for interesting apps: “Help without leaving home”, “Explore the depths of the sea”, “Searches that reforest” and “Discover nature” .
Tim Cook, on the other hand, took to Twitter to celebrate the date, noting that Apple has operated 100% with renewable energy since 2018.
