Looks like Jennifer and The Little Green Bag Project team have been busy. They’ve got two events lined up in the coming weeks, and a stack of bags to release into the wild. Spread the word, grab a bag, and support this important project. July 22nd, 3-6 p.m. – Juanita Greenbergs will be hosting a […]


Well, I didn’t find anything worthy of Weekly Trashed on my drive in this morning – just a couple of cardboard boxes, but nothing spectacular. So Justin thought we ought to lay this gem on you, spotted at our office. For starters, the cardboard box -> inside a box -> inside a box is classic, […]


Looks like the official site is up for South Carolina’s very own Friends of Live Earth event. The South Carolina Change the Climate Concert will allow Lowcountry residents to join two billion people on seven continents to help solve the climate crisis. Here are the details: What: South Carolina “Change the Climate” Concert Who: Analog […]


Buying Local Biodiesel

Last week I posted some info on ethanol and biodiesel production in the Lowcountry, but neglected to mention where to actually purchase alternative fuel. OM Fuels is setup over in the Fox Music parking lot, and is offering biodiesel at $3 per gallon. This seems to be a great grassroots effort, and is being administered […]


I just got back from the Catskill Mountains – and if it hadn’t been for my buddy’s awesome wedding, the notable absence of wifi and cell access would have been unbearable. It’s weird being disconnected now. So even though my Go Green tethers were cut, I still had my Go Green game face on. I’m […]


The Sustainability Institute (which deserves a post of it’s own — more later) is presenting a conservation workshop on Tuesday, June 26th from 6 to 7 pm at 1441 East Montague Avenue in North Charleston. The workshop is sponsored by the Charleston chapter of One Corps, which is the “official local action arm” and advocacy […]


A successful mass transit system is a major component of a greener, more sustainable community. So I was glad to read this article in the Post & Courier that takes a look at the current state of CARTA, the Charleston area bus system, and declares that not only is the service finally stabilizing, but ridership […]


Weekly Trashed

This week we go back to the column’s roots with a heinous shot of a cardboard catastrophe. The sheer volume of this pile amazes me, not to mention the wood palettes (on the right). I wonder if the resident knows that businesses will actually pay for those palettes? Check out the Weekly Trashed archives for […]


Yesterday, more than a few friends and readers pointed me to the Post & Courier article about how International Bio Energy is considering building a new ethanol plant here in the Lowcounty. This would be a real sign that our region is serious about a greener future, provide people with a fuel alternative, and bring […]


This is the kind of local green news I like to post – even if it’s a few weeks old. Apparently Half-Moon Outfitters is building a new distribution center they hope will obtain South Carolina’s first LEED Platinum certification. A sustainable building is a great way to show off green technologies and encourage other businesses […]
