EarthFix has been producing topical coverage of Pacific Northwest environmental news since June 2011. The home page shows all the platforms used by EarthFix journalists to share relevant content and encourage community participation and conversation through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Vimeo, Public Insight Network, audio podcast, polls and story comments.
