Apple has a new video in its series of Earth Day cartoons explaining the company’s environmentally-oriented accomplishments. The new one—Can an apple grow a forest?—talks about how a dinner meeting with Senior VP Lisa Jackson led to the decision to buy or grow a forest.

Which is remarkable—all the more so when you’re talking about the world’s most profitable company.
