Tim Cook Earth Day 2014

As Apple continues to observe Earth Day this year with its new Tim Cook-narrated “Better” film and detailed environmental report card site, the Cupertino company is issuing Apple-branded reusable water bottles to both corporate and retail employees to promote responsible.

In its message to employees, Apple says that 16,420 plastic bottles can be saved through reusable water bottle use, and Apple employees alone can save 22 tons of plastic waste per year (that’s 44,000 pounds) using a reusable water bottle.

Each water bottle features an Apple logo as well as a colored band picked by each employee. In Apple’s message to employees, the company said retail locations will receive their Earth Day company-issued reusable water bottles at a later date as distribution is currently taking place for Cupertino employees.

Apple observed Earth Day at its Apple Store retail locations across the globe yesterday by turning the leaf in its logo green at several stores. Employees wore special green shirts (as opposed to their signature blue shirts) and badges to mark the day as well.

Tim Cook and his colleagues in Cupertino marked the day with a special Earth Day event at its campus featuring performing artist Jack Johnson as Cook tweeted yesterday.

    This is a rebranded Klean Kanteen. When Apple chooses a partner for something like this they choose well. After 3 days of research a year ago I settled on this bottle.

  6. Does anyone find, producing new green cotton shirts for Earth day a little ironic?
