Green, green, green, green…Spring is here, and everything is green. I love it, but my compost pile likes brown too. That’s why I took the opportunity after last week’s hail storm to rake up all the green leaves that were in my yard. But instead of putting them directly into the pile, I am letting […]


I wouldn’t say that I’m counting on my kids to save the planet, but teaching them early and often is surely going to help. The “kids” in Gen Y and younger are truly engaged in the environmental movement, and Lowcountry Earthforce is proudly showing off their efforts this Friday. The 10th Annual Youth Environmental Summit […]


Voting with your dollar is one of the best ways to let the community know that you believe green choices are important. That’s why supporting local green businesses is a great way to contribute to the movement and reduce your impact on the planet. We get lots of requests from businesses wanting to be listed […]


Every day my boys and I take notice of the trees and flowers blooming in our yard. This season, we are also watching vegetables bloom and grow in our backyard. The reasons for adding a vegetable garden seemed only natural, and exciting, to us. Chad and I are avid gardeners. We truly enjoy planting perennials, […]


Spring is a great time to get out there and enjoy the scene. On May 16 and 17, Natural Awakenings magazine will be hosting South Carolina’s 1st Annual Green Living Festival. There are over 60 exhibitors participating, running the gamut from DwellSmart to chiropractors. Along with prizes and demonstrations, the Festival should provide an healthy […]


Go Green Night at the Battery

Every time I attend an environmentally-focused event, I am reminded that a little awareness can go a long way. That’s how Go Green Night at the Charleston Battery felt: The growing Charleston green community getting great exposure to the growing Charleston soccer community. With organizations like Green Drinks Charleston bringing its audience to the game, […]


My Favorite Reusable Bag

Many years ago as a professional ballet dancer, I carried my ballet shoes in a string bag. My pointe shoes needed air after those long rehearsals. I remember shopping with a fellow dancer and watching her dump out her shoes in the car and then refill her mesh bag with apples and oranges. My current […]


When it comes to going green, our family’s mantra has always been “Do What We Can, When We Can.” To that end, a couple weeks ago the stars aligned and guided a 2008 Toyata Prius into our lives. We couldn’t be happier. Over the last few years, I’ve spoken with many Prius owners about the […]


Route 40 Revisited

What fun my littlest guy and I had riding the bus downtown! Graham and I sat on the bench and caught the CARTA bus at 9 a.m. The bus was on time, so our wait was minimal. We boarded, paid $1.25, and rode route 40 downtown. Graham was comfortable and quiet on my lap, until […]


I just got a note from Jason Cronen, founder and chief executive guzzler of Green Drinks Charleston. There has been interest in forming a new chapter of this international organization on Daniel Island. The Charleston Battery are hosting Go Green Night on this Friday, so if any of you D. Islanders want to get out […]
