Greenability connects readers to greener lifestyle opportunities through news, events, resources, products, services and ideas in the Kansas City region and beyond.

Founded in 2007 as a bi-monthly subscription magazine by Julie Koppen, Greenability transitioned in 2015 to a more sustainable media for connecting with readers.

With the launch of email-delivered Greenability Weekly on Earth Day 2015, Greenability now provides timely, free access to all content, which readers can easily share. Find the latest on green homes, energy-efficiency, renewable energy, recycling and re-use, local and organic food, edible gardens, native plants and prairies, energy-efficient transportation, eco-friendly travel, green events, green jobs and eco-conscious investments. It’s easy to subscribe.

The Greenability website offers a continuously updated stream of news and events. Plus, the Marketplace provides a comprehensive directory of sustainable products and services, with quick links that connect readers directly to Marketplace partners’ websites.
