The Real Meaning of GREEN and A Muse in Purple are excited to announce the Be the Change Eco-Challenge.  Save the Planet and win prizes in the process!

About: Starting June 1, 2013, we invite you to participate in our eco-challenge.  The challenges are simple and are all related to living a sustainable life.  Living sustainability not only fosters a healthy life for your body, soul, and mind, it restores and protects our natural environment.
