The wellness and green living revolution is now in full swing," says Nicole Miale, Publisher of Natural Awakenings Fairfield County edition. "It's propelled by the kind of people who read our magazines and websites. Our job is to keep our finger on the pulse of cutting-edge advances and keep readers abreast of the best green, healthy-life choices available."

In 1994, healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman saw a need in her community for a better way to connect people seeking reliable information about natural health and green living with those qualified to provide helpful products and services. This desire spurred the birth of the first Natural Awakenings magazine in January, 1994, serving Naples and Fort Myers, Florida. Today, the original Southwest Florida edition has become the role model for an explosion of Natural Awakenings magazines across the country. Franchise owners now publish more than 80 local editions, with new areas being added every year.

With more than 1.3 million total monthly copies published, Natural Awakenings is one of the most widely read natural living magazines in North America. Magazines are published in cities as diverse as Miami, New York, Phoenix, Portland and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Northeast region alone hosts 14 active markets. In every community where we publish, thousands of loyal readers pick up their free monthly copy at hundreds of convenient public distribution points.
