Jennifer Grayson has always been a tree hugger — literally. As a child, she got stuck in the top of a pine tree on a windy day and had to be rescued. A native of bucolic Connecticut, she developed a profound love for nature early on, rock hopping across streams and growing pumpkins in her backyard.
An environmental journalist, Jennifer writes The Huffington Post’s regular green advice column (Eco Etiquette). She is also founder of the green political blog, The Red, White and Green; a frequent contributor to sites like Meatless Monday and Healthy Child Healthy World; and is regularly featured by media outlets including MSNBC, USA Today, WGN, McClatchy, KPCC, PRN and Americablog.
The former model and opera singer also works on camera, most recently as an eco-correspondent for the weekly online show Abe’s Live, which has been described as “Whole Foods meets HSN.” Active on the speaking circuit, Jennifer has been in demand as both moderator and panelist at sustainability conferences and related events. She also provides green consulting expertise to small businesses and Fortune 500 companies alike.
Jennifer was recently named to the governing board of Climate Resolve, a high-profile organization connecting Los Angeles–area leaders and policymakers in the fight against climate change.
