Welcome to our August issue!

Summer is coming to an end which means school is about to begin. August is our back to school issue and will give you all of the tools you need to make this year count. Whether you’re a college student starting up another year at a university or getting the kiddos ready for their first day of school, this issue will be your helpful guide to a green school year.

Before classes start, you will need to head to the store for school supplies. Try the alternative and buy recycled writing supplies! Our Cool Outrageous Stuff page will show you a few examples of companies that offer sustainable products to help you take a greener approach this school year. Not to mention at an affordable price.

Even if you’re not in school, with summer ending it is a perfect time to start fresh and work on being a better you. Start by learning about how to combat child obesity, learn to start composting, join a sustainable club, and cultivating a brighter future for communities in need! This issue is full of new challenges for you to take on to help keep this planet green.

As always, be sure to check out our Fun Green Facts, delicious recipes, Green Scenes and He’s Green She’s Green product reviews. If you’re interested in connecting with other people in Arizona who are passionate about leading sustainable lives, be sure to come to our next launch party on Thursday, August 17th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., located in Clarkdale, at Crossroads at Mingus.
