I am your typical citizen who wants to be more environmentally aware, but have always found the communication mediums to be dry and hard to follow. The solution? Grist! Grist makes following environmental news fun and easy. Its that simple. They have a perfect balance of humor and substance.

Grist is a great source of information regarding a host of issues/topics. I use Grist to learn about national and global environmental issues, additionally I can count on grist to give me reviews of household products, inform me about new bike paths in cities I often visit. I forward articles to friends on a regular basis. Currently, I am enjoying their three part series on what private schools can teach us about public school lunches. As a private school teacher, it's articles like these that keep me coming back!

I have been a reader of Grist for several years, and I recently wrote a quick note to one of the writers, whose work I find to be consistently excellent (included below). In general, I think it's a great publication. It really helps me keep in touch with what's going on environmentally without investing inordinant amounts of time that I don't have to do so. Dear David Roberts, I've read numerous articles of yours over time, and have always been impressed with your proficiency as a writer and researcher, and with your sane, balanced voice. I thought I'd just take a moment to write and tell you how much I appreciate what you offer on a daily basis; I feel that one of the main problems with our current culture is the dwindling of actual news delivered by reporters who understand the power and purpose of their actions, and you are one of those holding the line against the loss of our collective exchange of real, independent information and analysis. It just warms my heart to read work such as yours! I hope you continue to share your excellent talents for a long time to come. Thank you.

The Great!

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

the high-quality information they deliver on a daily basis to a wide readership.

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

keep up the good work.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their wide-ranging environmental reporting with a sense of wry humor when appropriate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

writers, and I only "met" them through their articles.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Educate more people on what's happening to affect the environment in our world, and help them take appropriate action.

Ways to make it better...

I had always had more time to read all their articles!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

paying their staff fairly so that they can continue doing this work indefinitely.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish more news organizations had the high standards and willingness to publish actual news (rather than the shouted infotainment that passes for it)that Grist exhibits.
