(Pocket-lint) - Now is your chance to help save the planet. When a huge company like Apple gets involved it's a sign now is a good time to help push for a better future. And you can, using apps.
Apple has teamed up with charity WWF and 24 developers to help make a difference with the launch of Apps for Earth.
From now until 24 April any proceeds from the purchase of a participating Apps for Earth app or in-app purchase will go to WWF. So if you were thinking of splashing out on apps, or in-up upgrades, now is the time to do it. Here's why.
- We are losing forests at the equivalent rate of 48 football fields per minute. Yes, minute.
- Less than one per cent of the earth's water is fresh and accessible.
- Wildlife populations of vertebrate species have dropped by 52 per cent over the last 40 years.
- More than 7 billion people consume 1.5 times more than the earth can supply.
The WWF is trying to help tackle all of these problems so future generations can live on a planet that's still able to support life.
