default Green / eco magazines

Post by rens-hens on 30th August 2010, 8:23 pm

I am wondering what green~ish or eco ~ish magazine you read or would recommend as a good read.
I am looking to possibly get some adverts for my new websites placed in the 'right' kinda magazine if i can get the 'right' kinda price. Or possibly an editorial/ article about the business.
Does anyone have any good ideas where would be a good place to start??

National Trust, Woodland Trust "Broadleaf", RSPB "Birds" , Soil Association, Garden Organic "Organic Way" , RHS, Federation of Holistic Therapists, ATL, UCU, IfL ( adult education bodies/unions) Smallwoods mag,

Others

Living Woods, Grow Your Own, Kitchen Garden,

Mother Earth News is a great publication in the states. Might not be the best choice for advertising as it would probably be expensive and also, since it has a strong North American following...it might not pay off to advertise there. Unless you want to ship your wares internationally overseas :-).

They have a great website that includes even more than what is in the magazine. I recommend to all of you to check it out. www.motherearthnews.com

There is also the Harrowsmith, which is a Canadian publication. Do you know of this one Badger?? I used to get it in the 80's, but haven't for years. I think it is still around though.

Have a great day.....I will be busy in the garden.....might post later if I can find my way out of the wheelbarrows of vegetables!

Remembering back to you original start up idea I would suggest you consider the national papers weekend supplements too. Widespread coverage, nice ad that people (like me if I had the money) would cut out and keep for when the mother's birthday arrives and I know I won't be able to see her and she doesn't want cut flowers!
