Recyclable packaging, and the idea of recycling or reusing items is not a new concept or idea. People have long “repurposed” items for other uses or other applications. Some of this repurposing is known as Yankee ingenuity. That is to say, the ability to get by with what you had and make it work for your application.
Apple recently announced that it will partner with First Solar to build a 1300 acre $850M solar farm. The farm will produce enough energy to power all of Apple’s California operations, its corporate campus and 52 Apple Stores. This is part of a growing trend of some of the world’s largest companies committing to renewable energy.
Apple and other sources have released many statements announcing the nearly $850 million deal. Apple does not plan to stop there though. Previous reports suggest that Apple will continue find ways for their supply chain to go green.
