LensWork to stop newsstand sales

April 13, 2008

Essentially for environmental reasons, the magazine will be subscription only.  Cheers to that!

All decisions contain a moral component. And that goes for business decisions, too.

So, we are taking a stand based on an industry-wide “blind eye” to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business. LensWork #75 is the last issue we will distribute via magazine newsstands. (This change affects newsstand buyers only. There will be no change for subscribers. You will still find LensWork in camera stores.)

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer in good conscience participate in a distribution paradigm that creates such inherent waste of our precious natural resources.
