It’s the little things that count, and if a lot of us do these “little things” to curb our energy consumption – we can really make an impact. The first room to look at is where all the action happens. No – not your bedroom, silly, the kitchen! There are energy-saving techniques that can be […]

Just wanted to check in and mention the results of the Summerville Town Council elections that took place on Tuesday. It was a pretty dismal turnout overall with only 10.8 percent of eligible voters casting a vote. Amazingly, even with the overall low turnout, District 4 set a new record for voters casting a ballot […]

This week’s edition is just box city. Nothing over the top, but rather someone who decided taking a couple minutes to break down boxes and take them to a drop site was just asking too much. I mean really, how hard is this?  I break down each box as I get it, stack them behind […]

Imagining what rising ocean levels will do to the Lowcountry is a little scary, but that didn’t keep Clemson School of Architecture students from taking a hard look at scenarios and plans to deal with it. Everything from a Venice-style peninsula to a New Orleans levee system were looked at. As covered by the Post […]

Strawberries have always been a guilty pleasure because they’re often shipped in from distant places like Guatemala, California, and occasionally Saturn. Buying produce out of season usually means a hefty carbon footprint because those little delectables are shipped here in the dead of Winter. But not here in Charleston during April and May.

From a galaxy not so far away comes a cartoony band of personified recyclable items based on Star Wars characters. They are the Star Recyclers and they’re here to help South Carolina kids learn to recycle… In this awesome poster, produced by the South Carolina Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling, the roguish Han […]

Here’s another great example of civic action making a difference.  The Mount Pleasant Pride Committee works to purge the East Cooper area of litter by cleaning up intersections, teaching people, and encouraging local businesses to provide outdoor trash receptacles. PRIDE will be cleaning up the intersection of Long Point Road and I-526 on May 19, […]

Do any of you remember it being this dry in Spring? At least the Post and Courier is talking about it, but I didn’t see any info on what we should do to conserve water. During times of drought, or near drought, water conservation is an important way to take the edge off of dwindling […]

This week’s entry has the usual cardboard carnage, but I couldn’t help notice that yard waste tucked in under there. Sure the guys could drag it out for the CAT, but they would be risking puncture wounds from the 4-inch nails sticking out of those boards. Not cool. More Weekly Trashed: April 27th.

If you’re a Summerville resident, like me, who’s concerned about where you live and the environmental impact of uncontrolled development, vote for change during the upcoming elections scheduled for May 8th. Currently, the Summerville town council majority vote is controlled by a group of very comfortable incumbents who some might describe as self-serving. If you […]
