Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' Becomes Newest 'Quarterly Co.' Contributor
Quarterly Co. today announced William "Bill" Nye, the popular science educator known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, as the newest contributor to the company's subscription service. Sent directly to subscribers' doorsteps every three months, Nye's personally curated Quarterly packages will contain a collection of tools to change the world and raise awareness of environmental issues.

Quarterly is a new way for anyone to meaningfully connect with the people they care about. Nye joins Quarterly's rapidly expanding roster of influential contributors, which includes Pharrell Williams, Tim Ferriss and others. In each package, Nye will include a variety of unique, tangible goods that creatively address the planet's biggest environmental problems, as well as a letter detailing how the handpicked objects fit into his life.
"A great many environmental problems are before us," Nye said. "To solve them we'll use science. It's how we understand the world. Since the longest journey starts with but a single step, I hope my mailings will give our subscribers some scientific insight and some cool tools to do a little bit more with a little bit less. I'm talking about items and ideas to change the world."
Nye rose to national fame by writing, producing and starring in the educational television program, "Bill Nye the Science Guy," which won 18 Emmy awards during its five years on the air. He currently hosts three television series: The Science Channel's "The 100 Greatest Discoveries," PBS' "The Eyes of Nye" and Planet Green's "Stuff Happens." Most recently, Nye was announced as a celebrity participant on the upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."
"We are thrilled to welcome Bill Nye to Quarterly," said Mitch Lowe, CEO of Quarterly Co. and a former co-founder and executive at Netflix and Redbox. "Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill does better than anyone else, and Quarterly is a creative outlet to spread his environmentally-conscious message. We have no doubt that people will love getting a personal, in-depth look at what makes Bill America's favorite stand-up scientist."
