GREEN ZINE is a volunteer-led platform where Greenpeace supporters can share their writing and creativity with the Greenpeace community while building relationships with other Greenpeace volunteers. GREEN ZINE is a community that is open to all but we particularly encourage voices from marginalized communities.

We hope GREEN ZINE contributors will use the platform to amplify their opinions about environmental and social justice issues. However, views expressed here may or may not represent the voice, opinions, or policy stances of Greenpeace. If you are interested in volunteering as a GREEN ZINE contributor, visit this link.
