ABOVE Magazine


aboveamag1.jpgWe just got our hands on the first issue, (summer ’09) of the reborn ABOVE Magazine and it’s a beauty. Nicolas Rachline has transformed the former glossy fashion mag into a stylish statement on sustainability – with a focus on eco-friendly art, fashion, design and innovation.

The 240-page, book-like issue is brimming with tightly written, informative articles – each immeasurably enhanced by great photographs and imagery.  A must-read for fully evolved environmentalists, eco fashionistas, style junkies and fans of green design.

Published quarterly, ABOVE, printed on recycled paper with organic inkmore, is well worth its $10 U.S. price tag.  This is one magazine you’ll want to hang on to.

Project 30-90: Sound + Sustainability

Concert goers today can green up their acts a bit, if show producers have their green acts together.


Case in point:  New Orleans-based, Don Kelly Productions’ upcoming Project 30-90, dubbed the intersection of sound + sustainability, scheduled to take place in New Orleans on September 5th.  Gates open at noon, music begins at about 2:30 and ends at around 11pm.  With a total of 8 acts, including: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ghost Land Observatory, The Generationals, and Benjy Davis Project.  Check out the show producer’s impressive level of green-ness and how concert-goers can purchase a Green Ticket.

PTN2.jpgThis lift from their Website explains, why the name, Project 30-90?
“Project 30-90 was the end result of hours and hours of diligent market research, brainstorming, therapy and meetings on synergy and search engine optimization. Seriously, we just like the name. It’s based on the latitude and longitude our hometown, New Orleans – 30.2 degrees North latitude, 90.1 degrees East longitude.”
