On Thursday Apple (AAPL) released its 2017 Environmental Responsibility report and noted that soon your iPhone could be made from materials that are more environmentally friendly.

"Making even small adjustments to the production of iPhone can have a powerful impact on our carbon footprint. For instance, we changed how we make the aluminum enclosure because the emissions associated with aluminum manufacturing across all Apple products represented close to 30% of our manufacturing carbon footprint," Apple said in the report.

"Traditional supply chains are linear. Materials are mined, manufactured as products, and often end up in landfills after use. Then the process starts over and more materials are extracted from the earth for new products. We believe our goal should be a closed-loop supply chain, where products are built using only renewable resources or recycled material," Apple said.

However, the company is still unsure of how to achieve their goal.
