BESIDE aims to bridge the gap between humans and nature—with high-quality editorial content and immersive experiences. We uncover compelling stories, pursue untapped questions, foster impactful initiatives and deliver meaningful, practical knowledge that can inform and empower all of us with the tools to help build a more sustainable future.
Our magazine aims to showcase the innovative curiosity, responsible resourcefulness, and adventurous triumphs of a diversity of people across North America empowered by nature, adventure, and sustainability, with whom we explore one thematic question per issue. BESIDEMagazine is free of traditional advertising, with the exception of a few select sponsored articles developed with carefully chosen partners whose values and vision we admire. We are distributed in more than 3000 independent retailers across Canada, the US, the UK, France, Belgium, Portugal, and Luxembourg. As a member of 1% for the Planet, we make a contribution to environmental charities with the sales of our magazine. In 2016, BESIDE was awarded a Grafika Award and was nominated for a Canadian National Magazine Award.
