Martha Stewart Living editor-in-chief Elizabeth Graves recently took part in a Build Series NYC talk where she explained the new #ChangeTheDay initiative the magazine has launched. Beginning with its April issue, Martha Stewart Living will be highlighting a 'change maker' in its pages each month, focusing on an area where simple lifestyle changes could significantly reduce adverse effects on the environment. Whether it is energy consumption, water conservation or waste reduction, the magazine will provide simple solutions to reduce our footprint on the environment. In the interview Graves also discusses a typical day at Martha Stewart Living, working with Martha and how the covers for the magazine are chosen each month. Enjoy the interview!
Please take a moment to take the Change The Day pledge online. The focus on April is reducing waste at lunchtime, such as cutting back on plastic packaging, avoiding bottled water and juices and using steel or bamboo utensils instead of plastic ones. You can also share the strategies you have adopted to reduce trash by using the hashtag, #ChangeTheDay on Instagram.
