This is me!


I make a zine called GreenLight that aims to empower youth to make sustainable change in their community. GreenLight has somewhat of a Cleveland focus, but much of it applies to anyone with a DIY-environmentalist ethic! Feel free to visit greenlightzine.org for more info. I'm open for trades, too!

Zines I've made!
-GreenLight #1 (Fall 2007- I don't have any more copies of this at the moment)
-GreenLight #2: The Waste Issue (Spring 2007)
-On Adulthood (Spring 2008- a zine about graduating college and wanting to be great)
-GreenLight #3: The Water Issue (Summer 2008)
-GreenLight #4: The Food Issue (Fall 2008)
-GreenLight #5: A DIY Guide to Cleveland (Spring 2009)

General about me stuff:
I graduated from Oberlin College in May of 2008 with a degree in environmental studies. I live in Cleveland now and have a fond affection for punk music, shows in basements, cooking, fort-building, crafting (especially recycled notebooks and collaging), riot grrrl, and building community in Cleveland.

GreenLight #5: A DIY Guide to Cleveland

Posted on March 22, 2009 at 3:40pm 0 Comments

Just finished the newest GreenLight, which is a DIY Guide to Cleveland. GL is usually a sustainability zine, but we felt like we needed a guide to everyone's favorite Cleveland spots. If you're living in the Cleveland area or are visiting soon... or just want to know more about some Cleveland gems, this is for you! I'm up for trading or you can order it at loralovesohio.etsy.com.

We also just launched a new website, which is pretty sweet! Check that out at greenlightzine.org!

hey Lora, thanks for wanting to trade. I'm running low on copies at the moment, and i'm in Oz so prob share locally at the mo. your zine sounds cool though!

all of them! i bet if you sent me a sweet package/trades, you'd get at least a couple back. unfortunately, i cant trade artxx because it cost an arm and a leg to print, though i'd love for everybody to have a copy.
greenlight looks great, btw!
