What:
Since successfully launching Taste of the Seacoast magazine in 2003, publisher Keith Lemerise has watched the publication grow from a once-a-year local menu guide found in hotels into a sophisticated bi-annual magazine with feature-length articles, extensive recipes, cooking tips and reviews.

Taste of the Seacoast is now the region’s go-to resource for diners, wine and craft beer enthusiasts, and foodies. Anchored by editors Lisë Stern and Jo Donoghue DeCenzo, it was important to Lemerise that the publication be committed to environmental stewardship and offset its carbon footprint. To achieve this, he uses Cummings Printing – a local, Forest Stewardship Council printer – to print each issue on recycled, post-consumer paper.

The magazine is also printed with eco-friendly soy-based ink, which degrades more completely than petroleum-based ink and is easier to remove during the process of paper recycling. In addition to its food and restaurant coverage, the magazine features green-related stories from across the industry. These stories cover restaurants and restaurateurs who have taken strides to ensure their business runs sustainably, from energy-efficient kitchen equipment, to on-site composting, recycling and working with local farmers.
