As a publication that promotes eco choices, printing the magazine on recycled paper is an obvious goal. Practice what you preach.

In August 2019 an idea came to me, as I do what I can to help save the planet in this climate crisis, I wondered what I could do to encourage others. My 'day job' is focused on print media and the idea clicked.

A quarterly magazine distributed in print to people who are interested in the ZW lifestyle, and available online too.

Produced in Suffolk, but with information and distribution across East Anglia. ZWNow contains news stories (both good and bad, when needed) advice, tips, local events, resources, and hopefully everything anyone could need to help save the planet.

The first issue of the magazine was printed in September, funded partly by advertisers, and partly self-funded. 700 copies were printed on gloss paper, and distributed, mostly to eco shops listed in the magazine, as many expressed interest to share it.

The second issue is to be printed in December, and already has a handful of advertisers, but to reach the goal of printing on recycled paper, seems unlikely without extra help.

Printing on recycled paper increases the cost by an average of 40%, and the goal for ZWNow is to ensure the recycled paper is sourced and processed in the UK to avoid the extra emissions and impact of transporting it from further afield.
