Canvas Bag Poll Results

Thanks to everyone for participating in the Go Green canvas bag poll. 40% of respondents are using their own canvas bags unless they forget them…I know I’m certainly in this group. And I appreciate the honesty of the 23% who are still using store bags. I was like that less than a year ago, but […]

Green News and Notes

Here are a few interesting and newsworthy links from the outer reaches of the green Web… Newsweek’s Project Green takes a look at the growth of green jobs and availability for recent college grads. Grist runs down the 15 greenest cities in the world. Plug-in hybrid school buses? Yep… in Tampa, Florida. EcoGeek takes a […]

One week after I discovered that Limited Brands management was asking store employees to leave the doors open, nothing has changed. I walked by the stores on an 85° evening, and the doors were wide open again (see new photos), allowing energy-intensive cold air to spill out onto the sidewalk. When I spoke to the […]

Introducing Me…

Hey all! I’m Jennifer Norman, a.k.a the woman behind the man, and of course his better half. So, I am not a blogger. I don’t own a PC. I’m not even sure how to access my voicemail. In fact, I’m writing this in ink, standing. And yes! Chad is totally forcing me to write. He […]

Bottled water is a huge environmental issue, both in the amount of plastic waste created and the needless carbon produced during the processing and transport stages. This is a topic we’ve covered pretty extensively at Go Green with Chad’s ongoing initiative to avoid bottled water altogether, an effort I think we’ve all adopted. If you […]

I’m a Disney geek. To me, one of the many benefits of living in the Charleston area is the relatively close proximity to Walt Disney World. Only a six hour drive (in the Prius!) and we’re practically in the Magic Kingdom. We try to make it down annually, if the budget allows, and we avoid […]

Weekly Trashed

This week, I was surrounded by cardboard on my drive to work. It was everywhere. The four shots below were all taken within 10 houses of each other. It amazes me how reluctant people are to recycle their cardboard. Charleston County, if you’re listening, we NEED CURBSIDE PICKUP!!! Check out the Weekly Trashed archives for […]

Hey, just a quick note that Go Green has two new blog contributors. Gregory Heath is a long time friend and environmental advocate – you may have caught his post yesterday. Gregory knows a lot more about politics that I do, and quite frankly is a lot smarter, so I look forward to his posts. […]

The Charleston County Council is meeting tonight to review spending proposals from the Green Belt Program. Meetings are held on the second floor of the Lonnie Hamilton, III Public Services Building, 4045 Bridge View Drive, North Charleston. You can read more at: Green Belt Program Proposals

Carbon-neutral Road Trip

When I wrote about road trip recycling and other things last week, I forgot to mention that I finally purchased some carbon offsets for my vehicle. We’ve made major efforts to green up our summer traveling (recycling, cruise control, slower speeds, tire pressure, filling up at night, etc.), so offsetting our vehicle’s carbon emissions was […]
