Join forces with Apple team members around the world this Earth Day by taking part in The Great Global Cleanup!
“With our commitment to carbon neutrality, we hope to be a ripple in the pond that creates a much larger change” – Tim Cook
Apple is committed to protecting the environment, and Earth Day is a great opportunity to reflect on the importance of safeguarding the planet we all share — and take action to help.
This April, Apple is proud to partner with EARTHDAY.ORG in their Great Global Cleanup campaign. Apple team members can participate by volunteering to pick up trash in your local neighborhoods, parks, streets, schools and beaches – to help keep your community clean, safe and healthy. Volunteer activities should be performed individually and safely per local COVID guidelines.
Sign up here and use this page to register your cleanup, track your activity and see Apple’s global impact.
Apple will match every hour you volunteer in this activity with a US $25 donation to EARTHDAY.ORG. To request a match, log your participation at https://apple.benevity.org/volunteer/20907 after you complete your volunteer time. Apple team members have up to two months from the date of service to track their volunteer time.
