Apple environmental head Lisa P. Jackson announced the Cupertino firm has given London’s historic Roundhouse – the venue for the Apple Music Festival which runs through September 28th – an “environmental makeover.”
Apple FAQ, via MacRumors:
We’re making major upgrades to the lighting, plumbing, and HVAC systems; installing recycling and composting bins; arranging to turn used fryer oil into biofuel; buying renewable energy credits to cover the Roundhouse’s September electricity use; and offering reusable water bottles instead of plastic ones.
The updates are expected to reduce the Roundhouse’s annual emissions by 60 tons, save 60,000 gallons of water a year, and keep more than 1,600 kilograms of waste from ending up in landfills.
