As a longtime reader of Grist, I feel that my donations to them are really just money that I owe them for all of their amazing journalism and advocacy, and for the energy that they inject into the green movement. I have made donations in response to their appeals, but also in response to reading an awesome article. Sometimes I make a gift to get whatever cool giveaway they have, but most of the time it is simply because I am thankful for all that they do and I want to ensure that they stay around.

Grist is my go-to website for breaking and in-depth reporting on all matters environmental. They are especially useful in providing a deeper and more contextual look that is not partisan or knee-jerk, but thoughtful and smart (with a very healthy dose of hilarious). Grist is my one-stop shop for all news environmental--and even environmental takes on seemingly "unrelated" news. And Ask Umbra is my mentor, whether she knows it or not :)

I receive news from Grist every day and consider it to be an indispensible resource for me professionally. It covers topics more than mainstream press and in fact has become a go to source, breaking stories later covered by the Post, Times, etc. And, it is wickedly amusing. I absolutely love the Grist.

Grist provides concise journalistic interpretation of relevant environmental issues. Their independence lends credibility to their reporting. When my economy improves, Grist will benefit.

I have been reading Grist for seveeral years, and donating as well to ensure they stay 'up and running'. I usually enjoy the articles, and always have the opportunity to learn a lot from the articles, as they are usually well annotated thru links to other articles/sources.
I recommend Grist highly.

Grist is great! Back before they are where they are now just info e-mail place I was glad for the doom and gloom with a smile info I got every now and then when they had enough money to power up the computer for a few hours and share.
From those years to now Grist has not forgotten who ther are and who they share to.

Grist is a fantastic source of news that matters, and an exceedingly well-run operation. They are creative, non-risk-adverse, and clever in their delivery of content. They challenge my assumptions in a consistently thoughtful manner. I rely on Grist to stay informed about issues I care about.

Grist is a wonderful resource for all things environmental. It brings serious news with a entertaining twist. I love how clever those people at Grist can be and their daily emails bring a much needed amusing perspective amidst the often troubling news.
