Mountain Life Media is a niche media group comprised of a small but passionate team of individuals who are driven to tell meaningful, relevant stories. We produce award-winning content that connect our readers to the fascinating world of the mountain kingdom and beyond. Thanks to intelligent design, creative art direction and stunning photography, our publications, website and events are among the most well-respected in the industry, and the key to our success as a brand.
We seek to showcase the extraordinary characters and epic adventures from Coast to Coast to Coast in Canada’s vast and varied wilderness, and all throughout the world, shining a bright light on the rich culture that the mountains represent. People from all ages and walks of life read our print and digital content to get inspired to make stories of their own.
Mountain Life is a high-quality, full-colour glossy magazine created with enthusiasm and integrity. It is printed on 30% post-consumer-waste recycled paper and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a non-pro fit organization that supports appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. We carry the FSC-certification logo with pride, because we support the highest environmental standards in an industry that uses paper. Also a member of the much-respected 1% for the Planet initiative, we contribute to conservation, responsible management and community-level bene fits for people near the forests that provide our paper. 1% for the Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
For the Love of Mother Nature
In an effort to offset the carbon impact of the paper products we use to tell our stories, Mountain Life has planted more than 7,000 trees in British Columbia and Ontario, which roughly equates to almost 10 years worth of ALL the magazines we’ve ever printed. Publishers, photographers, writers, editors, distributors, salespeople, bookkeepers, interns, and assorted young’uns all roll up our sleeves and get dirty for a few days. The aim is to make our offering every year, so eventually we’re responsible for a surplus of trees and have planted more than we’ve cut over the years. We may not be there yet, but knowing we’re actively contributing to the life and vitality of the local environment gives the whole crew a renewed sense of why we do what we do.
