MUSE September 2019

Global warming has been in the news frequently as of late, and it hasn’t been good news. Now, more than ever, we need to educate our kids on the importance of environmental awareness and responsibility—but, as always, we need to do it in a conscientious and sensitive manner.

This edition of MUSE Magazine does just that. Presenting a balanced view of the state of the world, the fears we are facing, and the global ramifications of each decision we make, you and your kids will get a view of the current and future state of our environment. Plus, you can meet real-life recycling heroes who are paving the way with innovative ideas to help turn trash into treasure. From picking up everyday tips to reducing your waste to seeing how technology is advancing to make things better for everyone.
