Landbouweekblad may be more than 90 years old and serves a largely conservative section of society but it is also a digital pathfinder for magazines.

Founded by Misha Teasdale, Lauren O'Donnell and Jeremy Hewitt (aka Jeremy Loops), Greenpop has launched Trees for Zambia, an initiative that aims to combat the high deforestation rate in Zambia.
