Apple has faced a lot criticism for failing to monitor its manufacturing partners’ questionable work safety standards, but it looks like the company is trying to turn a new leaf. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced that the iPad and iPhone designer is opening a new manufacturing plant in Mesa, Arizona that will be entirely powered with renewable energy.

Cool. Hopefully the first of many.

Btw did you know Apple just bought almost $600 million in sapphires?
