In notifying the company of its selection Jonathan L. Wood, Secretary of the Vermont Agency for Natural Resources, said "On behalf of the Governor I am pleased to inform you that a panel of judges has selected Green Living Journal for recognition in this year's Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence in Education and Outreach. Your award-winning project stands out as a model that should inspire all to find innovative approaches to conserve natural resources, safeguard human and environmental health, and prevent pollution before it is generated."

Green Living was founded by Marshall Glickman in Brattleboro in 1990. Current editor and publisher Stephen Morris credits Glickman with the simplicity and effectiveness of the original business model. "It's rare that a free publication has the quality editorial for which Green Living is known. Many of the top environmental writers in the world have appeared on our pages, and they let us use their material at no charge because it expands awareness of the key issues facing us."

Morris, who acquired the business in 2004, has expanded the business model into new territories, including the Upper Valley, the Champlain Valley (published by Ellen Shapiro), and Portland, Oregon (published by Gary Munkhoff). Circulation has quadrupled in the last five years and the paper edition has been supplemented by an electronic presence at GreenLivingJournal.com.

According to Morris there has been little change in the mission Green Living since its earliest day. "It's always been about serving the local community of 'friends of the environment.' This includes individuals, non-profits, and also the business community."

Companies and organizations recognized with Governor's Awards in other categories include IBM, Vermont Country Store, Vermont National Guard, Green Mountain Coffee, and Fletcher Allen Health Care.
