What are Verdant's
We are reaching out to consumers who are just
learning about how green initiatives can benefit them. We don't
claim to be "pure" green. We believe we need to begin by reflecting
readers' values and by appealing to their sense of style. Our first
goal is to present information in a way that we hope will help readers
enjoy more sustainable lifestyles. In the process, we will try to
do our part in starting to set an example.

On occasion we polybag our magazine in a plastic
wrapper. We use a polyethylene produced with d2w™ Oxo-biodegradable
additive by Degradable Polymer Products Inc. More information about
d2w is available at the Symphony Plastic Technologies website: http://www.degradable.net/ We are
experimenting with new bio-based plastics as a replacement.
As far as we know, Verdant is the
first US magazine publisher to use biodegradable plastic for poly-bagging
- and we initiated the process to try to gain US Postal Service
approval to use both bio-based PLA and d2w plastics for mailing.
For paper, inks, energy consumption and all aspects of production
and distribution our staff will constantly be seeking improved processes
that are more efficient and less detrimental to the environment.
