I read Grist nearly every day. I depend on the articles for information ranging from green trasportation and composting tips, to excellent recipes. With each issue, I always learn something new!

I receive Grist's top news headlines every day and almost always make time to read through it and even click on a few headlines. Grist keeps me well informed on a broad range of topics relevant to the environment - from climate change politics to food to urban living and cycling. This is a news source that I totally rely on and I have for years, ever since I was required to sign up for the updates for an Enviro. Policy class in college.

Grist is a terrific way to obtain environmental news without getting depressed. Information is presented in a clear, vibrant, often entertaining way. And the discussions about the articles are often just as informative.

It's an excellent source of information, and it has been adding features and contributors in recent years. I consider myself much more environmentally aware as a result of getting a daily Grist email. And the humor doesn't hurt either.

You don't need to share their political perspective to find utility in Grist's articles, something I love and appreciate about it. They're frequently at the forefront of covering issues that most mainstream publications ignore or don't cover until well after the same have appeared on Grist's radar. I always feel like I'm getting well-researched reporting when I read Grist.

Grist is an online news organization that uses humor to interpret green issues and inspire environmental action. If green were the norm, we’d have climate legislation in place. But people reject environmental information when it’s gloomy and makes them think they have to live in a yurt. So Grist is building a new movement by reaching 800,000 people a month who are redefining what it is to be green. This is not your parents’ environmentalism. Their readers are eager to learn about, discuss, and take action on the issues—Grist helps us do just that. Grist is an online news organization that uses humor to interpret green issues and inspire environmental action.
