In May earlier this year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) decided to stop including stickers in its product packaging. Tesla investor Ross Gerber has now expressed disappointment about this development.

今年五月,苹果公司(纳斯达克:AAPL)决定停止在产品包装中附赠贴纸。特斯拉投资者罗斯·格伯(Ross Gerber)对此表示失望。

What Happened: On Monday, Gerber took to X, formerly Twitter, and said while appreciating Apple for still including stickers with their products, he was informed that this practice had been discontinued. "I was sad. It is better for the environment...," he posted on the platform.

Apple's decision to remove stickers is part of its ongoing efforts to transition toward plastic-free packaging. The tech giant discontinued the tradition of including stickers in the boxes of its new products in May.


The stickers, which varied in size depending on the product, were a common feature in the packaging of Apple's main products such as iPods, Macs, iPhones, and iPads.

Why It Matters: Gerber has previously expressed optimism about Apple's future, particularly with the launch of new features like AI solutions for iPhones and the company's first-generation mixed-reality headset, Vision Pro.

为什么它很重要:格伯此前曾经表示对苹果的未来抱有乐观态度,特别是对于推出新功能,如iPhone的人工智能解决方案和公司的第一代混合现实头戴式显示器Vision Pro表示赞赏。他在今年三月写道:“Vision Pro很棒,而且这还只是第一代。相信我,等等看... #apple $aapl。”

"Vision Pro is awesome and it's gen 1. I'm telling you. Just wait... #apple $aapl," he wrote in March earlier this year.


Apple has been highlighting its commitment to green initiatives and reiterating its goal of achieving net carbon neutrality by 2030. The company has been making significant strides in reducing its carbon footprint and promoting eco-friendly practices.


In 2021, Apple allocated approximately $2.8 billion from its previous Green Bond issuances to projects aimed at addressing carbon emissions, supporting low-carbon design and engineering, enhancing energy efficiency, promoting renewable energy, and advancing carbon mitigation and sequestration.


Last year, the tech giant announced a $200 million investment in its "Restore Fund," doubling its commitment to advancing high-quality, nature-based carbon removal projects.
