Sprig.com to Likely Close

I know many of you still haven't recovered from Domino's folding. But today brings more dispiriting news. According to an article on Ecorazzi, The Washington Post Company is likely shutting down chic, green lifestyle site Sprig.com.

Sprig has been my go-to source since starting Eco*Pretty a year-and-a-half ago, so its folding hits hard. The journalism industry has basically imploded the last several months, with lay-offs and shut-downs filtering in like body counts during war. News articles use the word "transitional" to describe its state, but for those of us in it and without jobs, it's scary. Good luck to Sprig's staff.
