10 Everyday Items You Can Recycle

Like most areas in the country, our local recyclers only accept plastics #1 and #2. My family collects a lot of these plastics as bottles, milk jugs, Starbucks cups, and so on. But what about all those other plastic items in our lives? If something is labeled as a plastic #1 or #2, it can […]

There’s a New Store in Town

So you have accepted the realities of how global warming is changing our planet and you want to make some changes – great! Where do you start? Years ago I would search the web for current info, particularly when I was building a house. Yet the information and product knowledge wasn’t always easy to discern. […]

You have to look hard to actually find something labeled as a plastic #7. When it comes to resin identification codes, #7 is reserved for materials made from mixed plastics – or “other.” That’s why it is so rare to see a #7 in the wild – plastics of these types cannot be recycled, so […]

No, this isn’t a local version of The Biggest Loser… It is an effort of a nonprofit that I volunteer with to ease hunger in the Lowcountry and discourage food waste. The mission of Fields to Families is to help increase nutrition to the area hungry by coordinating distribution of fresh produce obtained from local […]

Are you becoming obsessed with plastic bags yet? I am. The bag phenomenon is everywhere. I mean, I’m hooked on my own canvas bag. Jen is blogging about becoming the “crazy bag lady”, and the other Jennifer started a project that gives them away. Then there’s the numbers: 100 billion each year in the U.S., […]

Gee, New Diapers

I have pushed my buggy past gDiapers at Whole Foods many times. I have read their starter kit package at least twice. Last Sunday, I bought the starter kit of gDiapers and began using them on my two-year-old son that afternoon. We’ve been a Pampers family since we brought Cooper home from the hospital four […]

We love hearing about local businesses that are on a mission to save the environment – or at least the part they affect. Businesses play a key role in the green movement not only by providing important products and services, but through educating patrons and setting a socially responsible example. Tony Bakker from the Charleston […]
