That's a good news. Apple has finally realized the importance of the environment, not just the technology. I remembered Greenpeace has criticized Apple for not making use of clean renewable energy. At least, Apple has made a move on to much greener pastures literally. I think Google has also done the same thing.

Although Apple have taken this step to make things greener, I will still not associate with the brand. I think other companies will be doing this more and more in the future however!

I do belive that Google has done the same. I did a little research and found this from their website.
