Who We Are
Ellen Shapiro is the South Burlington-based publisher of the Champlain edition of Green Living Journal. She has a masters' degree in business administration, worked in investments for an international financial giant, and lived an intense urban life before discovering the green joy that is Vermont. She writes,
I was astounded to discover this gem of a journal, publishing in southeastern Vermont for 17 years yet virtually unknown in the northwest and central parts of the state. There is a vibrant and thriving environmental community of readers and businesses here in Vermont that are on the whole invisible in mainstream media, yet come together so beautifully in a dedicated publication like this one.
One of the features of Green Living that I particularly like is the quality of the writing and range of topics suitable for readers with green creds ranging from solar-curious please pack-my-groceries in-canvas-bags, through off-the-grid homesteading veterans. My own lifestyle is making progress on that continuum and from time to time I'll let you know how my family and I are doing in our personal goals of greener living.
Approximate Territory We Serve
Green Living has been publishing environmental news since 1990. Our focus is on the practical and positive: most articles focus on how the reader can help the environment or improve their health. We make important information friendly and readable.
While Green Living is primarily distributed in parts of New England, Oregon and Northernmost California, its articles are almost always of national interest. Like an ecominded Utne, we scan many publications for the most interesting stories around. Most of our columns are reprints from larger, slicker magazines (translation: even though we're a small operation, we have top quality articles). Since most of our articles have a how-to focus, they make good reference material.
We print 48,000 copies of Green Living every quarter. Most are distributed free at nearly 900 locations in the locations described above. Those who live outside our distribution areas or want to support us can subscribe (see subscription info).
