My name is Brandy and I’m here in our “iPod” to send Apple your messages. We’re right in front of Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, in an eight-foot tall, ten-foot wide pod broadcasting audio messages from people like you to Apple’s employees and executives asking the company to power its iCloud with clean energy instead of coal. You can follow us on our livestream now.

15 May 2012

In the past month, 215,000 of you have written to Apple to tell them that we want their iCloud to be powered by clean energy, not coal.

This is an incredibly important issue for me personally. I use Apple products every day, just like millions of people around the world. I use my iPad every day in school, just like the one I’m using right now in this pod. It helps me in everything from taking notes, helping me to study for my tests (or even distracting me from class every once in a while.) My iPhone helps me connect with my friends.

I don’t want to stop using those great tools. I want Apple to use their influence to power the iCloud I use every day with clean energy, not dirty coal that’s bringing our planet to the brink of disaster. 

It’s been really inspiring to see how many of you agree in your messages! Here are a few of my favorites:

"Surely a visionary company like Apple can see that renewable energy is not only the smart thing to do, it's the right thing to do. Clean our Cloud!"

"Imagine, design, create ... Apple you need to approach your energy usage with the same ideals. You are supposed to be at the forefront of innovation yet you are using outdated, non-sustainable energy producers. Go Green!" 

We’re going to stay here and read Apple your messages as long as we can. If you haven’t sent them one yet, join the fun by going to facebook.com/cleanourcloud and we’ll try to read your message too!

From our iPod,

Brandy Palm
