Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the Goodnewspaper print and not digital?
In our fast-paced world, bad news sticks to our brains easier than good news. (It’s called an internal negativity bias.) But print slows you down so the good can actually sink in.
Plus, each issue includes art you can hang on your wall and it feels really good to be able to tangibly gift good news to a friend who needs some.
(Also, Good Good Good Subscribers get access to all digital editions of the Goodnewspaper as well — and you can even just subscribe to the digital edition if you prefer.)
What’s inside the Goodnewspaper?
Each issue is filled with dozens of good news stories. And at the bottom of each good news story you’ll also find action steps on how you can make the biggest difference with the issues you care about.
On top of that, every issue has a free centerfold poster featuring an inspiring quote illustrated by a guest illustrator (like Morgan Harper Nichols, Danielle Coke, Steffi Lynn, and more).
Plus, we like to include some kind of good fun like a good crossword, comics, or recipes.
What kind of topics does the Goodnewspaper cover?
The Goodnewspaper is focused on celebrating all sorts of good news. Many issues have themes — like The Sustainability Edition, The Mental Health Edition, The Veterans Edition, The Refugees Edition, and The Animals Edition. Others have more general themes with a variety of diverse stories.
No matter what, each issue will include a diverse range of good news stories from around the world — highlighting the people, ideas, and movements shaping the world for the better.
Is the Goodnewspaper printed on recycled paper?
Yes! Not only that: Good Good Good is Climate Neutral Certified, which means we have measured, reduced, and offset our entire carbon footprint.
