About the magazine
Adbusters is a global collective of poets, punks, and philosophers implementing radical design and media strategies to shake up the complacent consumerist culture.
They seek to clean up the toxic areas of our mental environment. Make the price of every product tell the ecological truth. Reverse the upward flow of wealth. Punish every corporation that betrays the public trust. Make secrecy taboo. And bend the straight line in wobbly new directions. Their mission is to forge big ideas, bold alternatives, radical solutions — new ways to live, love, and think.
Adbusters is one of a handful of magazines in the world that receives zero funding from advertising (print or online), corporate sponsorship or government/foundation grants. They are entirely reader-supported, allowing them to remain fiercely independent in what they do and say. They operate as a non-profit organization, which means that every dollar they raise through the sales of their magazines and other merchandise goes directly back into their campaigns and the production of the magazine.
