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.

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
after you complete your volunteer time. Apple
team members have up to two months from the
date of service to track their volunteer time.
