In these issues, readers will find poignant subjects, enquiries and in-depth surveys on current social movements. Journalists from the editions around the world have also been meeting with “young” upcoming figures of eco-activism, «The Generation Green».
Interviews of eco-committed celebrities such as Matt Damon or Shailene Woodley will show their involvement through their different associations and actions, to protect the environment and improve our consumer habits.
True to its format and position as women’s fashion and lifestyle magazine, these green issues will also feature regular magazine topics through environmental angles:
- Fashion stories showcasing eco-responsible brands, organic and recycled materials

- Guides to help the consumer in awakening daily awareness and for a better consumption
