Grist is an excellent source about a host of environmental issues and I read most of the articles it posts every week. I'm especially interested in the pieces that relate to food and family. These are helpful to me as I try to live in a more sustainable way for the health of the planet.

I'm a Canadian High School teacher who teaches geography and civics, so I find Grist very useful. It keeps up to date on environmental news, and I feel that's part of my job. I really do learn about all kinds of things on Grist that I otherwise just wouldn't know, or share, with my students.

living in denmark, I relay on grist to tell me what goes on in the world, I have been reading Grist for years and absolutely love everything about it, the way they cover the world in love and attention. This Magazine, gives a new meaning to serious humor, I love the knowledge they throw my way, the number of actions they take, the way they do it, be it food, hunger pollution or funny old men in big jobs, "how to's" .
Long strong Blog love and my deep respect to the people behind.. they make me take action.

Grist keeps the normally black and white news colorful while sticking to its core mission of informing readers about how to choose a greener path.

Grist tells the grisly truth with humor and wit. I rely on them for non-partisan environmental news and updates. I especially love Ask Umbra where people can write in with their environmental questions. She provides honest everyday solutions without being preachy or radical.

Grist provides daily information on wide-ranging environmental topics in an entertaining way, with so many links that it takes more time than the average green activist can realistically handle.

I trust Grist. They are independent. Do not owe their soul to the company store. This is what news is all about. They talk about everybody and everything. Nothing escapes them. Reliable, trustworthy and honest reporting. Good stuff.

I found out about phytoremediation from the grist. From there, Google took me to scores of projects around the world. We want to rid a lake's bed of mercury. Some want to scrape it all out and put it in a landfill that is adjacent to a leafy neighborhood; Others, like me, say since the mercury dumping stopped in 1986, sediment and flora have safely buried the menace. The 26-mile creek which feeds the lake carries tons of sediment from the famous Tully Mud Boils. I depend on the grist to eventually run a story that says, in essence, "Let sleeping dogs lie".
