Greenability is Kansas City’s only green magazine and is the most sustainably produced publication in the area. As a forum for community events and accomplishments, the magazine tells the stories of Kansas Citians who go above and beyond in environmental initiatives.
Each issue is full of resources and ways that readers can get involved in eco-friendly practices and activities. Story topics range from recycling, energy efficiency and local foods, to repurposing, renewable energy and green jobs.
This year, Greenability added a digital magazine edition to its website at www.greenabilitymagazine.com. It also started a Greenability Job Network to help connect job seekers with green employers through a job search website, www.greenabilityjobs.com. Readers can stay connected with weekly news through the free Greenability E-News.
Greenability was recently awarded the Green America second place national recognition for its sustainable paper practices. It has also received awards from Bridging the Gap, Sierra Club and Missouri Small Business Development and Technology Center. For the past four years, the magazine has been nominated for the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award.
Greenability is produced on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
paper, which is 100% recycled and contains 60% post-consumer waste. It is printed using soy-based (not petroleum) ink, and the electricity used in the paper production and printing processes is all offset by renewable energy credits. The paper is also Ancient Forest Certified.
In each issue, Greenability publishes an environmental benefits statement outlining the resources saved by its printing practices. Since 2007, Greenability has saved:
- 510 trees
- 226,620 gallons of water
- 150 million Btu of energy
- 13,770 pounds of solid waste
- 47,040 pounds of greenhouse gases.

Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America is proud to highlight one of our outstanding sponsors, The International Institute of St. Louis. The International Institute of St. Louis (www.iistl.org) offers a variety of integration services for 7,000 immigrants and refugees from 75 countries each year. The Institute is the southern anchor for the City of St. Louis’ thriving International District, located just south of I-44 on S. Grand Blvd.A substantial number of our clients are recently-arrived refugees fleeing war-torn countries around the world. We are there to help them by providing services at many stages of their adjustment process. When these newcomers first arrive in St. Louis, they must learn English, find a job, register their kids for school, and learn about their new homeland. After a few years, many start businesses, buy homes, and become US Citizens. We also produce St. Louis’ highly acclaimed annual Festival of Nations (www.festivalofnationsstl.org), this year scheduled for August 25 and 26. More than 100,000 visitors flock to the admission-free festival for a two-day round-the-world adventure of music, dance, food and more. More than 100 ethnic and international groups display their culture and provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the cultural roots of themselves and their neighbors.
The International Institute is our region’s hub for international activities and information,” said Anna Crosslin, President and CEO. “Our clients, volunteers and staff routinely travel the stretch of I-44 that we are sponsoring; so we are pleased to be helping Missouri keep its roads clean and beautiful.
