Learning about each section the magazine will provide


I wanted to touch base on each of the sections of the magazine in a little more depth to help you learn why you should spend your hard earned advertising dollars with Sacandaga Sun. Today let's discuss the "Eco-Green" section.

What is "Eco-Green" you ask? Basically that means we will cover all topics that pertain to green living, green tech, recycling, saving energy, green jobs or any other thing out there that promotes living the green way. Locally there are many businesses that are promoting this right now. It is our hope that those businesses will join us as we continue to explore this healthy way of living.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Premiere edition of Sacandaga Sun Holistic Resource Guide. While expanding the growth of Sacandaga Digest Publishing, which primarily was based online with our business magazine feature articles, and six years into the making, I have decided to move my ideas and motivations to a print piece.

It has long been a dream of mine to produce an upscale magazine showcasing the roles of many who offer solutions to some of life's problems and ultimately lead people to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Our motto of “Communication, education, sharing and vitality” will start as a seed of information growing in time to a full bloom, embracing a positive outlook, creativity, discovery and growth for the mind, body and spirit.

It is our goal to bring new ideas and resources into our reader's lives. Sacandaga Sun, through its magazines, ads, and editorial content, will be a vessel to inform area people about positive wellness management principles in everyday life and will encourage interaction among citizens as business people and the community alike.

We ask the public and business sector to participate online and voice your opinions, comments, concerns or suggestions for future editions via our Facebook page or our website found at:

Creative expression is a healthy and rewarding part of life. It allows you to embrace your individuality, while connecting with others. The magazine has a commitment to be a platform to profile businesses who are representing alternative solutions while educating persons leading to a positive vision that can both encourage and empower people to make healthy lifestyle decisions.

Your Editor-in Chief,
Shelley D Brienza
