To help promote Apple’s ongoing Renew program — which encourages users to recycle their old Apple devices — Cupertino today released three new iOS 9 wallpapers to promote its mission.

Designed by graphic artist Anthony Burrill, the wallpapers are entitled “Nature in Balance,” “Nature in Harmony,” and “Nature in Us,” and are available to download in sizes customized for iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and iPhone.

According to Apple, each wallpaper is, “inspired by nature and people coming together to help the planet.”

Unlike Steve Jobs, Tim Cook has made a big issue of environmental issues during his time as Apple CEO — making it a core component of Apple’s status as a would-be “force for good” in the world.

During Monday’s keynote, Cook brought Lisa Jackson, Apple’s head of environment, on stage to talk about Apple’s initiative to protect and preserve the environment. This included the announcement of a new robot called Liam, which Apple uses to separate different iPhone components so that they can be easily recycled.

To show your support of what Apple is trying to do with its environmental mission, you can download the new wallpapers here.
