Local or organic? Hybrid or electric? Paper or plastic or neither? Nearly all decisions today affect the environment, 和 figuring out which choices matter most often feels impossible. 

That’s why we made 环境保护狂, the only modern sustainability site that offers advice, clarity, 和 inspiration for both the eco-savvy 和 the green living novice. With more than 120 million readers each year, 环境保护狂 is the world’s largest information site dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream.

Staying informed 和 making smart choices is critical during this time of environmental change 和 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 文章s that are agenda-driven or 销售量y. We strive to cut 通过 the noise, providing trustworthy content that’s both authoritative 和 accessible. Everything we publish on 环境保护狂 is created with these core promises in mind: 

  • 完整报告。 When it comes to our content, we’re committed to full transparency. Sponsored content is clearly marked as such, 和 we disclose all potential conflicts of interest. We never accept payment in exchange for editorial coverage.
  • 永不宣扬。 仅仅因为我们是专家,并不意味着我们自以为是。我们可能是桃子,但从来没有布道。
  • 信任科学。 We’ll never be swayed 由 latest hot takes or political spin. The foundation of our writing, editing, 和 fact-checking processes is rigorous scientific research—and we always cite our sources.
  • 拒绝水洗。 Companies spend billions of dollars a year on marketing 和 know the power of an eco-friendly spin, even when it’s deceptive. We approach corporate environmental claims with a healthy dose of skepticism 和 refuse to play into misleading narratives.
  • 欢迎大家。 Saving the planet isn’t a special club. At 环境保护狂, there are no secret codewords or handshakes. This is a place where everyone should feel comfortable; where everyone can ask, learn, share, 和 be a part of a global globe-loving community.


Our in-house editorial staff oversees every 文章 on our site. Our 写rs are experts in their topics, with years of knowledge gleaned from the academic world, the professional world, 和 the real world too. We have advanced degrees 和 teach at universities; we’ve designed buildings, studied science, lived zero waste, gone plant-based, 和 have even tried life without shampoo. We are passionate about the planet – we talk the talk 和 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 和 recommend. In some cases, we may receive a small commission should you click a link 和 make a purchase. All of these links are clearly labeled. 


Our editors review our text, images, 和 illustrations before publishing to make sure that our 文章s are accurate 和 of the highest quality.

Once a story has been published, we have a stable of experienced freelance editors responsible for fact-checking 和 updating our content library, regularly ensuring that every piece of content on the site is up to date, accurate, 和 free of ethical concerns, conflicts, or misinformation. If an 文章 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 at 联系@treehugger.com. We review all reader feedback 和 make updates to our content as needed. 

In addition to our editors, our team also consists of visual editors 和 illustrators, as well as product managers, designers, 和 engineers monitor who monitor the usage of our sites, per our 隐私政策, to improve your experience across all devices 和 develop new features.

多元化& Inclusion

Our mission at 环境保护狂 may be to help the planet, but we can’t do that in a vacuum. Issues of oppression 和 systemic racism are inextricable from the climate crisis, 和 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, 和 human rights.  

2020年6月,我们 发誓 to diversify our in-house staff, prioritize hiring diverse contributors, center diverse voices 和 perspectives in our content, 和 share our platform with grassroots Black, Indigenous, 和 People of Color (BIPOC)-led environmental organizations. We are committed to being fully transparent about our progress on these initiatives 和 will regularly update our pledge with information about steps we’ve taken.


环境保护狂 was founded by entrepreneur 和 eco-advocate Graham Hill in 2004. With a background in architecture 和 design, Hill’s vision was for the site to serve as a vehicle for driving sustainability mainstream – 和 to do so with a modern twist.

In 2007, TIME included 环境保护狂 in their selection of “Top 25 Blogs” 和 Nielsen Online ranked 环境保护狂 as the number one sustainability blog. The small staff grew into an international team of experts, 和 more accolades followed.

The site was acquired by Discovery Communications in 2007, 和 in 2012 Mother Nature Network (part of the Narrative Content Group) took over. In 2020, both Mother Nature Network 和 环境保护狂 were acquired by 点破他们现在是一个幸福的大家庭。

在2004年 发布 about the criteria 环境保护狂 would use in deciding what to cover, the team explained that the primary goal of the site was to make it easy for consumers to research 和 purchase environmental yet compelling products 和 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, 和 we’re steady on our feet. But the 环境保护狂 mission remains true to those original values, 和 we will continue driving sustainability mainstream until the job is done.
