Hi! We’re Selva Beat — an environmental magazine with an edge. Welcome to the Selva Scouts!


For four years, we’ve been giving environmentalism a much-needed rebrand.

If you’re more glam than granola, we’ve had you covered. If you’re a person of color, underrepresented in the eco-conscious forum, we’ve had your back. And you’ve had ours. We absolutely love our readership, and that’s why we’ve decided to start the Selva Scouts. Together, we’re going to radicalize the industry.

Since our first print issue in 2016, we’ve amassed an amazing team of 7 creative women who care deeply about bettering the planet through creative means. On the web, we publish 6-8 stories, articles, and features a month. But now, we’ve reached an impasse with our funding.

To gain advertisers, we could be a little looser on our environmental standards or, a little more safe with our fashion choices. Instead, we’re gonna stay true to ourselves and make the switch to web-only. With your help, we can keep growing and focus on providing you with high-quality, sustainable editorials, articles, and videos. And we’d like to share this journey with you every step of the way.


Vegan s’mores, merit badges, velvet sashes, and berets; what do these things have in common? No, this isn’t the set list for a millennial reboot of Troop Beverly Hills. It’s the Selva Scouts — the world’s first and only eco-conscious scout program for the digital age.


Like everything we do, this project will be educational, community-driven, and of course, maximalist as heck ;) For a year, we’ve struggled to find a succinct way to both host a community and fund this venture. Originally, we looked into email courses but there was no way for you to engage amongst yourselves and we wanted you to feel empowered, not spammed.

Now, we're excited to say that we’ve finally found the perfect host for this unique project: Patreon! Through this platform, we’ll be able to speak directly to scout troops, release monthly merit badges, hold IRL day camps and classes, and share the down-to-earth behind-the-scenes content you all have been requesting.
