Green Living Magazine-10 Years Green and Still Growing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2007) - Green Living magazine is celebrating its 10th year of publication with a major relaunch as a full-size, national quarterly as of Spring 2008.

"An increasingly large number of Canadians recognize that a greener lifestyle not only benefits their health, homes and families but also their planet," says Green Living Enterprises President Laurie Simmonds. "Green Living has a solid 10-year track record in providing consumers with the information they need to make responsible, affordable and stylish choices about the way they live and the goods and services they buy."

Recent surveys have clearly shown that more and more consumers are concerned about both their own and the larger environment, and are actively searching for information and daily-life solutions. Green Living is perfectly positioned to be a primary resource for this fast-growing segment. For almost a decade, it has provided its readers with entertaining and informative eco content, ranging from food, fashion and homes to beauty products, energy-saving tips and compelling investigative stories - all delivered in a visually sophisticated package.

Green Living features a nationally recognized, highly experienced editorial team led by Editors Mary Anne Brinckman and Jocelyn Laurence and Creative Director Gary Hall.

The magazine also benefits from the synergies of other Green Living Enterprises undertakings, which create an unparalleled knowledge pool: the recently launched greenlivingonline.com; the hugely successful Green Living Show Toronto and the Show's new sibling, the Green Living Show Vancouver. This creates an unparalleled knowledge pool.

"Through Green Living Enterprises and our advisory and custom-publishing services, we now offer Canadian businesses a complete range of marketing services," says Simmonds. "We can connect and engage like no other with the vitally important segment of consumers who are leading the way to a sustainable culture, one which will rapidly - and out of necessity - become the mainstream of the future."

Green Living began as the annual Enviroguide, which provided information about environmentally friendly goods and services. It went bi-annual in 2004, and in 2005, was redesigned and renamed Green Living to reflect an expanded editorial content.

Green Living is owned by the respected not-for-profit environmental organization Environmental Defence and is published under licence by Green Living Enterprises. Profits from the magazine help to fund Environmental Defence's work to address critical environmental and health issues.
