Teen breathe have done it again with another great publication, this time a special edition with an environmental theme. These magazines are so gorgeous they beg to be opened and explored. This edition is full of great articles about teen eco-warriors, ways to reduce your impact on the environment, upcycling ideas, vegetarian recipes and more. Whether you are a full on Greta Thunberg kind of girl or whether you prefer a gentler kind of activism, this magazine is for you. It's $12.95 at your local grocery store or newsagent. Alternatively you can ask if your school or local library has a copy, or go to https://www.teenbreathe.com.au for more information.
