Suston Debuts in North America

After two successful years in Europe, we are excited to now take a bold step westwards: The very first North American issue of Suston Magazine will be published in connection with the Outdoor Retailer Shows in Denver, starting already with the upcoming Winter Market on November 8–11.

“We are very glad that we can help spread the good, green news in North America as well. The outdoor community on both sides of the Atlantic are facing many similar challenges, and will benefit from hearing more about the positive solutions and innovations that are taking place,” says Suston Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Gabriel Arthur.

The issue will additionally be distributed to leading retailers such as REI (US) and MEC (Canada). The launch will be undertaken in cooperation with Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) and its Sustainability Working Group.

“Outdoor Industry Association is thrilled to partner with Suston, the first-ever publication focused on the intersection of the outdoor industry and sustainability,” says Beth Jensen, Senior Director of Sustainable Business Innovation at OIA. “Through this partnership, we hope to bring broader awareness to the collaborative efforts of the OIA Sustainability Working Group and drive additional participation in its leading efforts to address shared global supply chain challenges.”
