Weekly Trashed

I’m in Vancouver, British Columbia today, so I had to go to the archives to pick this week’s shot. It’s actually a doozy, and I’m not sure why I passed on it two weeks ago. First off, they didn’t set aside the large items for the claw to pick up – that’s just common decency. […]

Here are a few interesting and newsworthy links from the outer reaches of the green Web… Surprise fellow Americans…! The U.S. rejects EU emission reductions. What’s global warming look like?

Well I’m off to Vancouver, British Columbia for 5 days. I’m really stoked for the trip, but concerned about my greenness. Traveling always makes things difficult because I get out of my routine.

Cow pun aside, when I recently went to my regular recycling spot in West Ashley at St. Andrews Shopping Center, it was gone – vanished into thin air! So recyclables in tow, I scoured the city looking for a new home for my bottles and paperboard. I eventually found an alternate recycling spot, but it […]


Holy Green!

I found this great post on SoMA about the 325-year old Circular Congregational Church here in Charleston.  The church just finished a three year project to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. Some of the actions they’ve taken include installing a sedum-grass roof, a geothermal system, a cistern to collect precipitation for irrigation, and […]
