N'East Magazine Issue 8 - The Green Issue
By the calendar, springtime isn't far off in the Northeast. That may have been the shortest winter ever. Sure, you might have been surfing without a hood in January, but you didn’t log as many days on the hill this year. Also according to the calendar, the eighth issue of N'East Magazine is about to hit newsstands. The N'East crew has done a bit of thinking about global warming, as well as beach closures, greenhouse gasses, and recycling. They're putting out their first- ever Green Issue.
"This issue, and all to follow, being green; printed on post-consumer paper, aligned with the Forest Stewardship Council, and using veggie- based inks - is something we are very proud of. Not because it took so much extra effort or cost, it was really as simple as asking for it - food for thought for the entire magazine industry," Jim McGinley, Publisher.
The Green Issue brings you the people, businesses, and organizations doing right by the earth, plus a gear guide full of environmentally sound products, and information to help you make a difference. Keep an eye out for harrowing tales of Northern Baja, snow shredding in NYC, technical climbing at Moss Cliff, thievery in Oahu, and athletes who are running their cars on french-fry grease.
"“Putting out a Green Issue is especially exciting for me, because I love to spend my time outdoors, and recently it has become impossible not to notice the ways in which our environment is changing,” says Amy VanHaren, Associate Editor.
Amy continues: “Human impacts have altered our climate and the landscape on which we live and play. I can't imagine climbing on 100 degree days in the near future or not being able to ride my snowboard in January. But I'm worried. We have to start changing the way we do things in order to preserve our earth and our active lifestyles.”
N’East Magazine continues to support and help promote the goals and ethics behind non-profits.
Tyler Briggs, Communications Director: “In addition to continuing our relationships with environmentally conscious non-profits, such as Surfrider and Access Fund, we have joined 1% for the Planet.”
N’East will be attending the US Open of Snowboarding in Stratton, from March 16 –18.
Tyler Briggs, Communications Director: “This will be our second year as a media sponsor for the Open, and as one of the biggest events of the year for N’East, we plan to keep the vibe alive. With the Green Issue in hand we hope to school some groms on what to do with all that schwag after they are done with it.”
Right after the Open, N’East will be back in Stratton at the VT Freeskiing Open from the 23-26 of March. You can also catch N’East at the Orage Pros and Powder Tour at Loon Mountain March 3 and Stowe Mountain March 31.
