Partners Seek to Modernize Magazine Consumption
The Go Green Initiative and Maggwire.com have partnered to modernize magazine consumption for over 2 million students worldwide who are registered with the Go Green Initiative, according to an Aug. 5 press release.
Maggwire.com provides paperless access to the world's most credible magazine articles, saving trees, time and money.
"I am excited to share Maggwire with our worldwide network of schools, and I believe this one Web site may have a tremendous impact on both learning and the environment," says Jill Buck, founder and executive director of the Go Green Initiative. "Maggwire provides an eco-friendly, 21st century research tool for students, teachers and parents at a time when access to the highest quality magazine journalism via traditional subscriptions may be out of reach for school libraries and families affected by the economic downturn. Educators who are looking for cost-effective and environmentally responsible resources for their students will be thrilled with Maggwire.com."
Ryan Klenovich, founder of Maggwire, says, "Younger generations are reading professional journalism less and less as they spend increasing amounts of time on social networks, playing video games and watching television. Jian Chai and I started Maggwire because we love magazines, and wanted to help the magazine industry reach the next generation of readers with a fresh, digital experience. Teachers, parents and librarians can offer Maggwire as a tool for students to research numerous topics and even comment on articles to create educational discussion forums."
The Go Green Initiative is a comprehensive environmental action plan for schools. By promoting environmental stewardship on campuses from preschools through universities, the initiative works to involve families, businesses and local governments in the common goal of protecting human health through environmental stewardship.
