Apple’s green initiatives are pretty well-known, and with pretty much every product that is announced, Apple always makes sure to remind their customers about how green their products are. It’s not just limited to their products, but even their operations, such as in Singapore where Apple has made it 100% renewable.


This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that Apple is looking to do their part in preserving the national parks in the US. The company has recently announced that from the 1st of July to the 15th of July, every purchase that is made using Apple Pay will see $1 donated to the National Park Foundation.

However it seems that it is a bit limited in where you can use it at. According to Apple, these are for “every purchase made with Apple Pay at any Apple Store, on or through the Apple Store app in the US.” Now $1 seems like a teensy fraction compared to how much Apple products like the MacBook Pro cost, but if you were planning on buying something anyway, why not do something that goes towards preserving nature, right?

According to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, “America’s national parks are an inspiration to us at Apple, and we know they are as important to many of our customers as they are to us. Our goal is to leave the world better than we found it, so this July we’re making it easier for anyone to help preserve the beauty of our natural, cultural and historical treasures.”
