2015 Philadelphia Honey Festival sponsor, Grid, is a free, monthly print publication focused on sustainability issues and initiatives in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Grid was born out of a potent combination of inspiration and frustration. With enthusiasm fueled by reading the growing library of books about sustainability, its founders looked at the current media and found it lacking. The story of sustainability was either not reported, wrongly reported, under-reported, or rightly reported but lost in the deluge of if-it-bleeds-it-leads, celebrity-obsessed titillation.
Where was the encouraging voice, so easy to find in books, to discuss these issues, and on a local level? They took a hard look in the mirror, gargled some salt water and decided that Grid would be that voice.
Beyond the helpful how-to’s, Grid explains complex issues — whether they be economic, environmental, social — in a straightforward and easy to understand way. How many people really know what storm water management is, or geothermal heating? Their journalists will spell it out, draw pictures — heck, they may even write songs — whatever it takes to demystify these important concepts! They want people to read Grid and feel like taking on the world, not hiding under their beds.
Print copies can be found at local businesses and events in and around Philadelphia as well as online in a digital edition format. Philadelphia Honey Festival thanks Grid for sustaining its sponsorship for a second year!
