Who We Are


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.

The paper editions of Green Living are distributed in parts of New England and northern Oregon, its articles are almost always of national interest. 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 80,000 copies of Green Living every quarter. Most are distributed free at nearly 1,200 locations in the locations described above. Those who live outside our distribution areas or want to support us can subscribe (see subscription info).

River Valley

local editor: Stephen Morris

His career has spanned a variety of industries ranging from woodstoves (Vermont Castings) to solar panels to books (Chelsea Green in White River Junction). He is co-founder of The Public Press, a book-publishing business that provides options for writers whose works are too specialized for traditional publishers. He is also editor and publisher of the quarterly magazine Green Living and the author of six books, most recently the novel, Stripah Love.

Champlain

local editor: Ellen Shapiro

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."

Columbia River

local editor: Gary Munkhoff

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."
