Today I read the entire Summer 2007 edition of Elephant, a Boulder published magazine devoted to organic and sustainable living and conscious consumerism.
Elephant is not to be confused with the other Elephant Magazine, the internet site published by “Friends of the Elephant Foundation” and devoted to the awareness and care of actual animal elephants.
I’ve never read the Boulder Elephant before. The magazine appears deceptively trite from a brief glance of the cover. Many specialized living magazines are nothing more than a vehicle for ads, with a few paltry articles qualifying as content. Wait that’s almost every major magazine. But surprisingly Elephant features very in depth and detailed writing on a variety of subjects, including travel.
The summer issue features articles on juicing, composting, eco-friendly home renovation, a primer on hip L.A. Westside activities, and of course a passion of mine: bike commuting.
Elephant is chock full of good writing and content. Best of all the ads (most featuring short haired female yoga practitioners,) don’t overwhelm the articles themselves.
Elephant Magazine is all over Boulder, select coffee shops in Denver, and at themindfullife.com
