Who We Are
Staying informed and making smart choices is critical during this time of environmental change and opportunity; you’ll find that our nearly 20-year-strong library of sustainability content gives you the confidence to purchase a better dishwasher, build a green beauty routine, or simply learn more about the world around you.
It’s not always easy to discern reliable sustainability content from articles that are agenda-driven or salesy. We strive to cut through the noise, providing trustworthy content that’s both authoritative and accessible. Everything we publish on Treehugger is created with these core promises in mind:
- Report with integrity.当谈到我们的内容,我们致力于full transparency. Sponsored content is clearly marked as such, and we disclose all potential conflicts of interest. We never accept payment in exchange for editorial coverage.
- Never preach.Just because we are experts doesn’t mean we are self-righteous. We may be peachy, but never preachy.
- Trust science.我们永远不会被最新的热门或政治旋转摇曳。我们写作，编辑和事实检查过程的基础是严格的科学研究 - 我们总是引用我们的来源。
- Refuse greenwashing.Companies spend billions of dollars a year on marketing and know the power of an eco-friendly spin, even when it’s deceptive. We approach corporate environmental claims with a healthy dose of skepticism and refuse to play into misleading narratives.
- Welcome everyone.Saving the planet isn’t a special club. At Treehugger, there are no secret codewords or handshakes. This is a place where everyone should feel comfortable; where everyone can ask, learn, share, and be a part of a global globe-loving community.
Our in-house editorial staff oversees every article on our site. Our writers are experts in their topics, with years of knowledge gleaned from the academic world, the professional world, and the real world too. We have advanced degrees and teach at universities; we’ve designed buildings, studied science, lived zero waste, gone plant-based, and have even tried life without shampoo. We are passionate about the planet – we talk the talk and walk the walk.
We add relevant links to our content that may help you further your knowledge or enrich your planning about a specific destination. Occasionally, we link to outside websites if they’re relevant to the story, especially in the case of directing readers to businesses or products that we have tested and recommend. In some cases, we may receive a small commission should you click a link and make a purchase. All of these links are clearly labeled.
Our editors review our text, images, and illustrations before publishing to make sure that our articles are accurate and of the highest quality.
Once a story has been published, we have a stable of experienced freelance editors responsible for fact-checking and updating our content library, regularly ensuring that every piece of content on the site is up to date, accurate, and free of ethical concerns, conflicts, or misinformation. If an article has been modified, the date of the most recent update is provided at the top of the page. Spot something out of date? Let us know by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org。We review all reader feedback and make updates to our content as needed.
Our mission at Treehugger may be to help the planet, but we can’t do that in a vacuum. Issues of oppression and systemic racism are inextricable from the climate crisis, and its consequences disproportionately affect marginalized groups. More than simply standing for the environment, we must stand for environmental justice, which includes speaking up about inclusivity, equality, and human rights.
In June 2020, we承诺分散我们的内部员工,优先招聘diverse contributors, center diverse voices and perspectives in our content, and share our platform with grassroots Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-led environmental organizations. We are committed to being fully transparent about our progress on these initiatives and will regularly update our pledge with information about steps we’ve taken.
TreeHugger于2004年由企业家和Eco-Advocate Graham Hill成立。在建筑和设计中，山的愿景是该网站的愿景，作为推动可持续发展主流的载体 - 并以现代的扭曲为此。
In 2007, TIME included Treehugger in their selection of “Top 25 Blogs” and Nielsen Online ranked Treehugger as the number one sustainability blog. The small staff grew into an international team of experts, and more accolades followed.
The site was acquired by Discovery Communications in 2007, and in 2012 Mother Nature Network (part of the Narrative Content Group) took over. In 2020, both Mother Nature Network and Treehugger were acquired byDotdash，他们现在是一个大幸福的家庭。
在2004年post在decidin Treehugger的标准会使用g what to cover, the team explained that the primary goal of the site was to make it easy for consumers to research and purchase environmental yet compelling products and services, as well as to inspire corporate responsibility. “TreeHugger’s criterion will evolve over time,” they wrote. “Our initial approach will be loose as we get our sea-legs.”
We’ve grown a lot since then, and we’re steady on our feet. But the Treehugger mission remains true to those original values, and we will continue driving sustainability mainstream until the job is done.
