Green Living Magazine
How does the company you are nominating exemplify the concepts of reducing, reusing and recycling? (500 character max.)
In the Green Living Magazine office, the staff is encouraged to recycle or compost. They don’t put things in the trash. Dorie, the publisher of Green Living, truly exemplifies reducing, reusing and recycling. She owns an aquaponics system in her backyard that grows different types of herbs. She reuses containers from her hair care and body scrubs. In addition, she uses non-VOC paints and switched her carpets to wood and bamboo flooring.
How does the company engage and inform employees and consumers about sustainability? (500 character max.)
Our mission is simple: We aim to Educate, Empower and Inspire our readers to make eco-conscious choices for a healthy life and healthy planet. The magazine is designed to empower readers with new ideas and inspirations using nature’s resources to lead readers to a more sustainable lifestyle. From kid-friendly recipes to local spas, Green Living educates readers through the written word how making even the smallest change can have a huge impact on our environment.

Every month, Green Living hosts a launch party to celebrate the newest issue of its magazine. But the parties aren’t just to promote the latest issue of Green Living — they exist to promote community. From advertisers to readers, the magazine brings together like-minded individuals to network as a sustainable community. In addition, we have a 50/50 raffle benefiting a different local non-profit each month.
