Apple launches Daisy, the recycling robot

Ms Jackson said the company would make an unspecified donation to non-profit organisation Conservation International for every handset handed into the program from now until April 30, and recyclers would also receive an Apple gift card in exchange for their old device. Conservation International uses science, policy and partnerships to protect the natural world people rely on for food, fresh water and livelihood. "In recognition of Earth Day, we are making it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle devices and do something good for the planet through Apple GiveBack".

Daisy is part of Apple's efforts to create a healthier planet through innovation, helping it move toward its goal of making its products using only recycled or renewable materials. In fact, Daisy reuses some parts from Liam and the new bot can disassemble nine different versions of the iPhone.

It's an improved version of "Liam", the recycling robot that Apple revealed in 2016 to take apart iPhone 6 phones. If that wasn't impressive enough, the speed of the iPhone recycling robot is unprecedented, with the ability to take care of 200 iPhones an hour.

For the future Apple intends to ensure that every manufacturing facility, data center, officer or store runs on 100% renewable energy in the 43 countries that it now operates in. Though Apple has yet to release a timeline for its full transition, it has started active projects to recycle rare earth metals, paper products and more common metals from its supply chain.

Apple is determined to celebrate Earth Day accordingly, so it made an exciting announcement only a few days before the big day.

CDC warns against eating any romaine lettuce
Women seem to be the most vulnerable to this infection, as 70 percent of cases reported are female patients. Anyone eating out at a restaurant should confirm that lettuce is not from the Yuma region before eating.

Perhaps the most impressive thing is that Apple now runs all of its operations on 100% renewable energy. Ultimately, Apple hopes to develop a closed-loop production system in which every reusable part of older devices is utilized in new ones.

"We're committed to leaving the world better than we found it".

The smartphones we use are composed of the many valuable materials including platinum, lithium, copper, gold, and steel. Soon, other facilities across the country will be equipped with similar robots as well. The reward for the challenge is a special achievement and iMessage earth day stickers.

Apple will celebrate Earth Day this year by adding green leaves to its logos at several major Apple stores worldwide.
