Last December, Hollywood legend Harrison Ford sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about an environmental organisation he frequently collaborate with. During the three-minute segment, he echoed an accurate point about Mother Earth.
“Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.”
I daresay World Wildlife Fund (WWF) shares the same sentiment — the planet conservation is teaming up with Apple to help raise awareness and safeguard our planet by launching the Apps For Earth collection.
Apps For Earth – Helping The Planet, One App At A Time
From April 15 through April 24, all proceeds from participating apps and in-app purchases will go towards WWF’s global initiatives. With apps that span across gaming, productivity, photo, fitness, and social media, it’s a step in the right direction to get into green living.
Visual Supply Company’s VSCO Cam is offering a new WWF preset where users can utilise it to improve their wildlife photography; Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds 2 is featuring a limited time only event where players are tasked to protect the oceans.
Apps For Earth – Apple’s Part
The other participating apps include: Jurassic World: The Game, Cooking Dash 2016, LINE, SimCity BuildIt, Yoga Studio, and many more.
Besides freshening up its ‘Environment’ page, Apple is also organising nature conservation talks and photo walks in selected stores for the public to gain a better understanding on the current climate issues. And get this, Apple Retail will turn the leaf of the Apple logo green at 132 stores around the world.
The next time you’re shopping or using the air-conditioner, consider the eco-friendly alternative. Could technology save us? Believe it or not, these small measures add up. Just because we live in a country empty of the deadliest natural disasters does not give us the excuse to sit by and do nothing.
Five, ten, twenty years from now, whatever happens to Mother Nature is on us.
