Apple Raises The Bar With Eco-Friendly iPhone Packaging

By Tessa Love

When it comes to technology, it can be hard to maintain an eco-friendly business. After all, the very nature of tech can involve a lot of progress in short periods of time--which can also lead to a lot of waste. But Apple is certainly leading the pack when it comes to incorporating sustainability, from their offices to the way their products are packaged. 

In 2013, Apple hired Lisa Jackson, an environmental policymaker, to the firm's executive team, formerly the administrator in charge of the US Environmental Protection Agency. The move led Greenpeace to praise the company: "Jackson can make Apple the top environmental leader in the tech sector by helping the company use its influence to push electric utilities and governments to provide the clean energy that both Apple and America need right now."

Among some of its eco-initiatives are the commitment to close the supply chain, a Clean Water Program and moving all its factories and offices to solar power. And now the company is adding eco-friendly packaging to the list.
