ANNOUNCEMENT
New Initiative: My Bug Story

We’re excited to announce our new initiative – My Bug Story. Watch the video below and learn more here.

 

Welcome to Green Matter!

Green Matter, Limited is an environmental education company designed to encourage people of all ages to THINK with their brains (gray matter), bring about CHANGE (living greener) and take steps to get involved to SPREAD awareness by using “bugs” (arthropods – insects, spiders, scorpions, etc.) as attention-getters, teaching tools and role models.

 

THE ENVIRONMENT

>> The Problem
We are in the midst of a global crisis characterized by climate change, environmental damage, habitat loss, population decline and species extinction… all things caused by man yet detrimental to our future.

>> The Solution
We need to educate ourselves and others to gain an understanding about and respect for the environment. Kids are the future drivers of change and I believe that more emphasis needs to be placed on science education.

>> The Catch
Nowadays, kids aren’t exposed to nature and are less interested in science. But, bugs make great attention-getters (and keepers), teaching tools and role models! This is how Green Matter is unique.

Kids love bugs
