Bus Route 40

It’s official. After living in Mt. Pleasant for almost eleven years, I had yet to use a form of public transportation. No longer – I introduced myself to CARTA via bus route 40. I am officially becoming a bus rider. I consulted the website for CARTA, and was dismayed by the lack of working information […]


Just a quick reminder for all you greenies that the Charleston Battery will be hosting “Go Green Night” at their May 9th home game against the Miami FC Blues. This is a great opportunity to get out an enjoy a great soccer match, but don’t forget to check out their newly installed solar array.  The […]


Last night, the Charleston Green Committee delivered its first set of recommendations to the city. This act is symbolic and encouraging, and it demonstrates a shift in thinking towards a more sustainable future. Yes, I find it shocking that it requires a volunteer committee to get the city moving on what could very well be […]


Today is Go Green Charleston’s 1st birthday! One year ago today, we launched Go Green with an abundance of energy and enthusiasm towards helping each of us make the Charleston-area a greener place. I want to personally thank each and every one of you for choosing to be a part of this experiment – the […]


Whole Foods Markets across the U.S. will be celebrating Earth Day by eliminating plastic bags. Once the store on Houston Northcutt Boulevard uses all of its supply, there will no longer be a choice of paper or plastic. Hooray! What a great way for this company to set an example. Disposable plastic bags are an […]


Earth Day Festival Roundup

The 2008 Earth Day Festival in Park Circle was a great event, and we’d like to thank everyone for coming out and seeing us. We spoke to 463 people (I had a counter in my pocket), and I feel like our interactive waste-free booth was in perfect alignment with the event. Visitors seemed to be […]


The Green Race

The Sustainability Institute and TrySports present the Green Village Tour 8k Race /5k walk on May 3rd. The course winds through the new environmentally sensitive developments in the Park Circle area. This is a certified course – set your stop watch. The organizers have taken many steps to be green. What a good reason to […]


The 2008 Charleston County Earth Day Festival is this Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Park Circle, and Go Green Charleston will have a booth in the “Recycle and Litter Management” tent. We’d love it if you stopped by and said hello. This year’s festival is calling for interactive, waste-free participation. To this end, […]


Two weeks ago, I went out with the boys to turn the compost pile we started last fall. As soon as I flipped the first forkful, a haze wafted into the air. At first I thought it was bugs, but then I realized what was going on: we had steam! This is good news, and […]


CleanGreen Charleston – It’s just fun to say, isn’t it? We just got word of a new eco-friendly residential cleaning service called CleanGreen Charleston. (thanks Maegan!) It looks like the Seventh Generation and Green Seal-approved products are the norm, and they’ll even take out your recycling. Good stuff! I love seeing entrepreneurs developing all these […]
