Three New Green Design Magazines


You don't have to read Nieman Journalism Lab to know the publishing world is in shambles.  Particularly in the shelter magazine category, where available titles shrink from one month to the next, there hasn't been much going on.  But in the past few months, I've noticed some new activity — perhaps this is an inflection point.  In any event, if you're looking for fresh green design inspiration, here are three new titles to keep in mind. 

1.  Pure Green Living Magazine


Pure Green Living Magazine is a bi-monthly online publication for stylish green living and design.  The first issue was published in July and the newest issue features a healthy dose of reclaimed materials and homes. 

2.  Standard Magazine


Interior designer Kelly LaPlante created Standard Magazine, also an online publication, to show that "green is a standard, not a style."  The manifesto: "design should be captivating, timeless, built to last and, of course, produced in a way that honors people and the planet."

3.  Green Building & Design Magazine


Green Building & Design recently published its first print magazine and, every other month, will focus on innovative firms in the country "embracing sustainable practices in profitable, innovative, and responsive ways.

Where do you go for fresh green design inspiration?

    Green Building & Design recently contacted us about being in this magazine, but it required that we submit a few of our vendor contacts to them for potential advertising. Something didn’t feel quite right about this. I understand that if their products were used in a project that was featured, it is natural to have advertising related to it, but it seemed just like a big advertising loop, rather than sincere journalism. Anyone else have opinions on this?

      Hmmm … that’s interesting. Probably good to go with your gut.
