On November 25, 2020, the Regeneration in ACTION (RiA) Magazine surpassed the 475,000 pageviews milestone! The coveted 500,000 pageviews achievement is mere months away!
Launched in 2009 as the Zero Waste Zones Blog, the original premise was to document the Zero Waste Zones (ZWZ) successes and later the Recycling Refinement and Sustainable Food Court Initiative accomplishments. When the ZWZ were sold to the National Restaurant Association in 2012, the ZWZ Blog evolved into the Zero Waste in ACTION (ZWA) Blog.
The June 2018 RiA Magazine article, New Era, New Name: Regeneration in ACTION!, announced the ZWA Blog evolved into the RiA Magazine. Additionally, the article stated the Elemental Impact (Ei) tagline segued from Sustainability in ACTION to Regeneration in ACTION.
Over the past decade, the RiA Magazine, along with sister Ei magazine, The IMPACT, grew into valuable industry-media resources. In 2016 Ei catapulted into respected environmental journalism when the below prominent invitation arrived in early November:
The U.S. State Department invited Ei to join the invitation-only COP22-preview press conference call. Journalists from the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times were among the respected, mainstream media on the call.
The IMPACT Blog article, Ei: Respected Journalism, chronicles Ei's segue from a valuable industry-media resource to respected environmental journalism. In addition to the magazines' contributions, Ei Founder Holly Elmore authored a plethora of industry-trade-journal articles and documents, which are detailed on the HollyEmore.com Fingertip Press page.
