Macadamia farmer Rex Harris turns old Macintosh computers into birdhouses. The Australian environmentalist owns Piccadilly Park where he’s launched on an intensive wetland restoration project encouraging rainforest trees on the land. The trees attract birds. The birds act as predators to keep undesirable insects in check. This, in turn, reduces the need for pesticides.
All those birds need homes, so Harris decided to take Apple’s eco-commitment to new heights. He guts old Mac Plus and Mac Classic cases and modifies them to use as birdhouses on his farm.
