Who We Are
Gary Munkhoff is a forester with over 40 years of "hands on" experience in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He writes, "as time rolls by, the old body can only endure so many years of planting trees, running power saws, and cruising timber on steep mountain slopes, so I sold my share of the tree farm back to my partners and decided to retire.
"Well, that is until one hot July day in 2007. My wife and I were attending the SolWest Energy Fair in John Day, Oregon where we ran across Linda and Daniel Pinkham running their Green Living Journal booth. We were hooked immediately on the grand idea of a free, local-national publication that offered a broad and open exchange of information on green living. So after several conversations and many emails we decided to start an edition that would serve the Portland-Vancouver area as well as the other communities along the Columbia River."
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).
