Grist (originally Grist Magazine; also referred to as Grist.org) is a free American non-profit online magazine that publishes environmental news and opinion articles. Launched in April 1999, Grist is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.

Newsweek has referred to Grist as "The Daily Show of the environment." Grist won the Webby People's Voice Award for Best Magazine in both 2005 and 2006 as well as Utne's Independent Press Award for Best Online Political Coverage.

Chip Giller is president and founder of Grist. Giller received the 2004 Jane Bagley Lehman Award for Excellence in Public Advocacy, from the Tides Foundation in recognition of the role Grist is playing in increasing environmental awareness. Giller took first place in the 2001 AlterNet New Media Hero contest for his work on Grist and was one of five finalists for the Environmental Grantmakers Association's 2002 "Environmental Messenger of the Year Award." Giller was previously the editor of Greenwire, the first environmental news daily, and a reporter for High Country News, a biweekly newspaper covering Western environmental issues.

Grist's taglines are "Gloom and doom with a sense of humor" and "A beacon in the smog".
