Greenology 101: Solar Energy Workshop

More news on the solar front: The Sustainability Institute is hosting a free solar energy workshop. Oddly there’s no infocon their website, but Bethany says: On March 13th, 2008, from 6-8 p.m., The Sustainability Institute will host a solar energy workshop free to the general public. A special guest from Argand Energy Solutions will spearhead […]

There’s Life at the LEEP Blog

There’s been activity over at the LEEP blog! It looks like they are in the middle of a new project called Web of Water. It’s always nice to see other lowcountry green bloggers kicking it. So Give ’em a look, leave a comment, add them to your reader – all encouragement to share, share, share.

While SC creeps along with net-metering, I thought I’d take a look at a solar technology that has positive economics today: solar hot water. Hot water heaters consume a large share of our household juice each year, so cutting the cord can have a real impact. I contacted Solar Hot Water Works (part of Elemental […]

Bouncing Dryer Balls

*** EDIT *** I’m an idiot, these aren’t green at all (unless you dig toxic breast milk).  Live and learn. During a delightful visit to DwellSmart, I purchased my first box of dryer balls. This purchase makes sense both economically and environmentally. I won’t have to purchase another box for two years. The dryer balls […]

Last week, I was given an opportunity to check out the Charleston Battery’s freshly installed solar panel array (thanks Andrew!) When they announced that Argand Energy Solutions would be implementing the panels, I was stoked. This is exactly the kind of responsibly behavior we need to see from local business owners. The array is impressive, […]

Our children are inheriting a planet that is warming. Educating our children about climate change can be daunting, as it can be an overwhelming topic. I do not want to frighten my boys, nor leave them with a sense of hopelessness. It requires careful consideration, but I believe the earlier they know about our planet’s […]

I noticed something wrong on my recycling bin the other day, and an email to Charleston County Recycling confirmed it — this info was out of date. It says, “No Packaging Boxes (i.e. cereal, laundry, or soda can boxes)”, noting that cardboard can be taken to drop site. Because my bins were made before February […]

In my composting update last week, I mentioned that Jen has been bringing home bags of used coffee grounds from our local Starbucks. On Friday, five more bags arrived. Heavy moist bags of expired grounds might gross some people out, but the inner-composter in me knew this would be a windfall to the pile. Coffee […]

Gdiaper Update

I wanted to inform you all that Graham and I are still Gdiaper strong. We switched about a month ago, and I have no intention of ever relying on disposable diapers again. Gdiapers are easy to put together, put on, and put away in the toilet. The underpants and liners show no signs of stress. […]

I gotta give a shout out to the good folks over at the Lowcountry Open Land Trust. They recently purchased a 63-acre tract of land on the Ashley River that was destined for development. As a result, LOLT is making sure that a public park is being built instead. This is a great example of […]
