Bookstores Feature Magazines Using Recycled Paper

Nearly 400 Barnes and Noble and Hastings Books and Music stores nationwide will run in-store promotions highlighting magazines that use recycled paper, under a major push by Co-op America's Magazine PAPER Project and Next Steps Marketing.

The "Green Paper for People and Planet" promotion will occupy prominent fixtures within these stores with special signage to highlight the magazines' commitment to the environment. Each publication featured in these unique fixtures is an environmental leader in using recycled paper with at least 30 percent post-consumer content.

Six magazines that use recycled paper -- Shape, Fast Company, Mother Jones, ReadyMade, Nickelodeon Magazine, and Body + Soul -- will be prominently featured during November in 153 Hastings Books and Music stores.

Barnes and Noble has committed to offering 10 slots for magazines that use recycled paper at a heavily discounted rate with special signage in their top 240 stores in January. This promotion will roll out more widely in April 2008 in conjunction with Earth Day.

Both Hastings and Barnes and Noble are demonstrating their support for the environment by supporting magazines that use recycled paper. "This promotion demonstrates that magazines are committed to the environment in a time where environmental issues are at the forefront," says Maire Walsh, director of client services at Next Steps Marketing. "For the participating magazines, it can mean building awareness for their titles, increasing sale and market penetration. More importantly, it shows that there are magazines in our industry that are embracing recycled paper."

The paper production industry is the fourth largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions of all US manufacturing industries. In addition, deforestation is responsible for 25-30 percent, or 2 billion tons, of greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere each year. The global warming savings from the six magazines featured in this promotion are substantial: collectively they save more than 21,698,223 pounds of carbon dioxide annually! This is equivalent to curbing carbon dioxide emissions put forth by more than 1,970 cars in a year. Today, less than 5 percent of all magazine paper contains any recycled content.

"The time is now for each and every magazine to step up and take responsibility for the impact their publication has on the environment," says Valerie Latona, editor in chief of Shape magazine, the largest women's consumer magazine using recycled paper. "You often hear about recycled paper being poor quality, or that it costs too much and won't work financially for a publishing company; however, if Shape can do it with a 1.7 million circulation size and still be successful and profitable, I'd have to say those excuses are not valid. There can be no more excuses."

If the entire North American magazine industry used just 30 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) paper, the results would be staggering:

-- 1,448,487 tons of wood would be saved, or the equivalent of 10,027,984 trees; -- 6,275,322 million BTU's of energy would be conserved, or the equivalent of the energy used to power 68,960 homes in a year;

-- 1,694,830,791 pounds of greenhouse gases would not be released into the atmosphere, or the equivalent of greenhouse gases emitted by 153,894 cars in a year;

-- 3,377,016,271 gallons of wastewater would not be produced, or the equivalent of 5,113 Olympic-sized swimming pools; and

-- 760,160,370 pounds of solid waste would be conserved, or the equivalent of 27,149 fully-loaded garbage trucks

At last, food enthusiasts around the world will have the opportunity to explore the world of ethnic cuisine as seen though the eyes of African-American Chefs.

Veterans Business Journal Relaunches as Vetrepreneur Magazine

The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) will change the name of its official magazine from Veterans Business Journal to Vetrepreneur. The new magazine name plate will debut with the Sep/Oct 2007 issue. Veterans Business Journal has served as the nexus for the veteran business movement since 2004.

The name change follows exhaustive market research that indicated the veteran business movement needed a unifying message. NaVOBA found that vetrepreneurs associate strongly with being a veteran and strongly with being a business owner. But until now, they have not put those two things together.

Starting in 2008, the magazine will be published 10 times per year, from its current bi-monthly frequency. The e-newsletter will be distributed weekly, which will double its current frequency. Vetrepreneur Editor-in-Chief Rich McCormack said that the magazine's editorial focus will shift a little. "We will place more emphasis on NaVOBA's forward-looking agendas such as the corporate opportunity, vetrepreneur to vetrepreneur transactions and state government contracting. Those three opportunities dwarf the federal government opportunity, and nobody except us is really paying attention to them."

New Magazine: Kiki Magazine

After a fruitless and exasperating search for magazines that would entertain, educate, and inspire her own daughters, Jamie Bryant found herself doing something she'd never dreamed of -- launching a new national publication. Kiki Magazine, which debuts next month, is aimed at "girls with style and substance" ages 9-14. Part magazine and part studio, Kiki proves possible the marriage of fashion, design, and creativity with smart, safe, age-appropriate content that will please girls and their parents.

Kiki began when Bryant's daughters, aged 7 and 9, started to express interest in fashion and design, topics not usually covered in magazines aimed at younger readers. Already frustrated by overtly-sexualized clothing and media marketed to an increasingly young audience, Bryant -- a Cincinnati-based editor and educator -- found the same was true of the current crop of magazines for adolescent girls.

"Even publications aimed at younger teens offer up soft-sex articles and overly-mature content that parents and readers are uncomfortable with," Bryant says. "There simply wasn't anything compelling being published for tween girls."

Bolstered by her years of experience in education and textbook development, Bryant took matters into her own hands. "I could sit around and wait for someone else to do something about it, or I could do it myself," she says. "And I work with a lot of creative people who were determined to help me."

The result is Kiki Magazine, a high-quality, full-color quarterly that debuts September 2007 with a two-part editorial mission. First, Bryant explains, Kiki aims to help each reader develop a sense of style that reflects her own personality. It also seeks to help readers gain the confidence that comes from being comfortable in their own skin, whatever their style.

"Kiki is first and foremost a fun fashion magazine and creativity journal for girls," Bryant says. "But at the same time, it's also a publication of real substance and value, something parents and kids can both feel really good about."

Bryant also notes that Kiki Magazine is as unique in what it doesn't feature as in what it does. "We're leaving out what most teen-magazine publishers consider must-have content. There's no gossip, no boyfriends, no sensuality, no instructions on how to kiss, no tips on getting sexy abs," she says. "We don't miss it. Parents don't miss it. And, perhaps most of all, our readers certainly don't miss being bombarded with mature themes they're not ready to tackle."

Instead, according to Bryant, Kiki takes the college fashion curriculum and tailors it to younger readers, using the fashion and design industry to explore a variety of topics, including business, geography, fine art, craft, history, world culture, and even math and science. "The fashion world is the perfect platform for helping girls discover and nurture their own sense of self, style, and creativity, while providing content of solid value," Bryant says. "Kiki is proof that having fun with style and artistry is completely compatible with intelligence and creativity."

Kiki pairs articles about fashion with art and design project pages that turn the magazine into an interactive creativity journal. "These creative pages give each issue of Kiki even greater lasting value," Bryant says. "Girls will want to hang onto each issue and come back to it over and over again."

AutoTrader Launches New Magazine for Green Automobiles

AutoTrader Publishing launched a new publication dedicated to vehicles that get 30 miles per gallon (mpg) or more.

AutoTrader Green will be the first publication focusing exclusively on fuel-efficient vehicles. The new magazine will also include editorial content such as informational articles about different types of fuel-efficient cars and trucks, including Alternative-Fuel Automobiles (AFAs) such as hybrids.

The recent spike in gasoline prices and an increasing concern for the environment has dramatically accelerated consumer interest in fuel-efficient vehicles. Fuel-efficient models that get 30-plus mpg are on the market now more than ever before. Hybrid sales are up 30 percent from last year, while overall new-car sales are down 8 percent. And the estimated 28 million new drivers who will enter the market in the next five years are more concerned about the environment than any generation before them.

"The new AutoTrader Green magazine provides consumers in the community with the only local mechanism to view hundreds of fuel-efficient vehicles at once," said AutoTrader Publishing President Richard Jamin. "It's a win for dealers because our product immediately increases public awareness of their fuel-efficient inventory, which means more traffic on their lots. Most importantly, it's a win for the environment, and we're proud to be able to satisfy the growing demand for information about these vehicles and access to them."

New Media Marries Old: A New Model for Books and Authors

Are the new media a threat to the old? Not if you can find a way to marry the two to give more value than either of them alone, says writer Jurgen Wolff. He's done exactly that with his new book, Your Writing Coach, published by Nicholas Brealey Publishing, London and Boston.

Here's how it works: when you buy the book, you discover that each chapter ends with a code word or phrase. If you go to the book's web site, and type in the code word on the "chapter extras" page, that unlocks a wealth of bonus material, including video interviews with Robert Cochran, co-creator of the hit series, "24," agent Julian Friedmann and novelist Michael Ridpath.

"I wanted to find a way to combine the value of the written word with audio-visual material," Wolff says. "I'm a total bookaholic, but I also love seeing and hearing experts sharing what they know about writing, so this gives the readers the best of both worlds."

The site's bonus material helps to make the principles in the book come alive. One of the chapters is about how to get support for your writing from family and friends, and the bonus is a video conversation between Philip Harland and his wife Carol Thompson, who are both writers. "They're wonderful to watch," Wolff says, "because with great humor they reveal how they've learned to be supportive of each other, even though they have very different personalities."

Another advantage of this mix is the ability to add to and update material quickly. "Usually there are at least a couple of years between editions of a book, but of course you can update a website anytime, and it's my goal to keep the site growing in usefulness to writers." Additionally, Wolff posts frequently on his podcast,, and offers a free monthly creativity e-bulletin (available by request to BstormUK @

As well as interviewing other experts, Wolff, who divides his time between London and Southern California, shares his own experience (which includes over 100 hours of produced television, half a dozen books, and plays performed in New York, Berlin, Los Angeles and London) via the site as well as the book. He mentions one more great benefit of mixing media: "Now I hear from people all over the world, who have read the book and want to comment on it, ask a question or share their success. That's tremendously rewarding, since we writers normally work largely in isolation. There's nothing better than hearing that a reader used the information in Your Writing Coach and the website to help them finish their novel or sell their screenplay."
