    Hi (Pump Girl or perhaps OldProf),

    Quick story idea – I am the co-founder of a company providing Carpooling/Ridesharing on a global scale to help reduce costs and CO2 emissions. The idea is that we are mixing social networking with eBay like features to help individuals to leverage their personal vehicle to cut down on their carbon footprint. We are focussing on getting people to rideshare to events, (concerts, festivals, marathons, sporting events), where users have an affinity and would like to travel with people sharing the same interests.

    I am not 100% sure that our story fits with your blog – it seems to as we look at the rising costs of fuel and what individuals can do to offset their costs. However if you are interested in finding out more and doing a story on us – please contact me.

    Thanks a lot for your time.


    P.S. Here is a recent media link for more information –

    Dear whomever this may concern,

    Hi. My name is Laura and I am an intern at I was wondering if it was any way possible if I could have the email of your writer who writes for the editorials. I would really like to have an actual person I can get into contact with(meaning, first and last name and email). This would really help me out. The purpose of me contacting you is to create updates on the Grist content to generate more links. I’m just composing a data sheet of editorial contacts of green blog websites. Someone else from Grist will contact you soon and fill you in on the details. Again, this would really help. Thanks!
