For years, stories in Archie Comics have explored the benefits of being environmentally friendly – from anti-pollution tales of the 1960s and ‘70s, up through tales of recycling and conservation in the ‘80s, ‘90s and the millennium, Archie Comics has always been at the forefront of the “green scene.” In the 1990s, Archie was even the first major comic book company to print their comics on recycled paper and soy-based inks!

Now, environmental issues are once again a focal point of today’s headlines. People from all walks of life, no matter what age, heritage, or political affiliation are seeking ways to live smarter when it comes to our natural resources. Teenagers in particular have embraced the cause, and Archie and his friends at Riverdale High are right in line, as two special stories reveal this February.

The environmental awareness begins in BETTY & VERONICA SPECTACULAR #81. In “How Green Can You Go,” Tomoko Yoshida and her brother Akira inspire the rest of the school to “go green” in a big way, by having an eco-friendly winter dance. But the only “green” Veronica is willing to commit to is money! Will she change her mind when her father offers to host the dance in the new solar-powered wing of his estate? Or will it take one hunky enviro-boy to make her see the light? Don’t miss this exciting story loaded with off-the-grid environmental tips and off-the-chart laughs!

Over in BETTY #172, the girls decide to offer a trophy to the boy who proves to be the most into “The Green Scene.” Of course, the boys are filled with imaginative ways they think they can reduce global warming, while the girls are the ones with the real solutions, in this amusing tale filled with useful environmental tips.

Don’t miss these timely and poignant tales – order your copies today!
