I am a huge fan of the Grist. I get the daily edition, and always enjoy the selection of news, opinions, and discussions that get posted. Grist balances news and forums wonderfully- I absolutely recommend the Grist to any environmentalist.

Give Grist more $$, so they can provide even more news and talks!

Grist is always there when I need good information about the environment, about food safety or advise on bringing it all together. The beautiful part is the sense of humor that makes scary news easier to read and to understand.

I started reading Grist 4 years ago and never looked back. I have to check their website at least once a day.

Once I asked a question of the advice columnist, Umbra, and got a great published answer about conserving water during a drought versus the trash paper products produce.

Grist is a door that opens and lets us see the world. The real world. I always look forward to the emails I receive and it would take too long to express myself. Grist enriches us all.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that they helped me make intelligent choices for my health and wellbeing and I share this with as many as I can. It's the least I can do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them very, very large amounts of money.

I host a green talk radio show every Saturday, I write a bi-weekly newsletter, I have a facebook fan page called Mrs. Green's World, a website all about sustainability and I tweet. I need good, reliable informative content. I rely on Grist to provide me with good ideas, research I can count on and information to share with my listeners and readers.

I am a total fan and Umbra wanna be because she provides information to the general public in a fun, informative and sometimes outrageous way. A perfect example is her video on saving water.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

using the research and in my work as an environmental social media entrepreneur.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Publish more often.

I have been reading Grist for years and as a result have been able to keep up with green developments both good and bad. It doesn't hurt that they include a dose of humor. I have alerted several young people to Grist and though I'm not sure of how much influence it exerted, they have become very involved in green activities in work and school.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

recycling of books to be read and thereby reducing demand for paper

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

With entertaining wordsmithing, Grist manages to entertain me and educate me at the same time on issues that directly impact the health of the planet and my health as an individual. Grist exposes false advertizing, encourages cleaner/smarter living through higher options and better choices, points out inconsistencies in public policies dealing with polution, plus so much more. I learn something new and very helpful to me with every edition. I've searched out an electric provider that uses renewable resources. I've changed the way I shop for produce. I've started walking more and seek out public transportation when it's available. I share links to the site with friends on a regular basis. Grist has changed my life for the better. Please give them the recognition they deserve.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life by being guided and transformed in my thinking about what it means to make green choices. I've learned that living green is more than a choice here and there; it's a mindset and a WAY OF LIFE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their readership by promoting their publications.

Grist is really impressive. There's a lot of good, up to date information, delivered in a timely manner. It doesn't drip with guilt laden mumbo jumbo. It informs and educates as well as suggests courses of action which are possible, as solutions.

I look forward to my Daily Grist newsletter, which is always filled with up-to-date, well-researched stories regarding the environment and related issues. Almost daily, I share a story with others, pursue an issue by contacting a company or elected official, or use what I have learned in decision-making about lifestyle or consumer behavior.
I love the positive attitude and consider Grist to be an essential part of being an informed citizen of planet Earth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daily interactions with others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get even more people on board through advertising.

Seriously talented journalists who dig deep to get to the bottom of each story, and often with enough humor and/or finesse to make the reader feel comfortable, esp. with tough subjects.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sharing with others, hearing others respect and admiration for the reporting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of any!
