Last week, Darla Moore announced the creation of the Charleston Parks Conservancy. Their main goal will be to improve the 120 city parks and green spaces, as well as encourage community stewardship in the effort. Green spaces are good spaces, and  important for urban residents who seek to enjoy what we are all trying so […]

Trying to reduce trash is a major goal in our house, and probably many of yours as well. So when I find a biodegradable item that is normally trash (think packaging), I feel better about throwing it away when I know it is returning to the earth by decomposing in a landfill.  But when trash […]

A couple months ago, we asked our readers how they were buying local food. With oil prices at an all-time-high, cooking with locally grown food can greatly reduce your impact on the environment (and save some serious cash too!) We had 99 respondents at the time of this writing, and over 40% were shopping at […]

I recently ran across a local blog written by Dorn Moore chronicling the construction of their green house in the Oak Terrace Preserve neighborhood of Noisette. Our Little Green House is a great example of someone using technology and a little gumption to make a positive impact on our community. We’ve finally made up our […]

This Thursday, June 19th, is National Dump the Pump Day, and CARTA is celebrating by offering free rides on all routes. Cheers to CARTA for giving us this opportunity to participate and save a little money, all while helping the environment and promoting public transportation. “We hope that new riders will consider trying CARTA on […]

Go Green Charleston friend and contributor Melanie Milonas sent me a quick email this morning about a local company planning to use priuses (prii?) as taxi cabs. What a cool idea! I have not been able to find out any more info. There is a parked domain at, as well as some official state […]

I just got an email from Mary at Lowcountry Laundry Service. They now offer eco-friendly options to their customers, including chlorine-free bleach, plant-based detergents like Seventh Generation, and line drying. Yeah, line drying! Clotheslines are a holy grail for most green suburbanites, as they are often unobtainable due to covenants and restrictions. I remember reading […]

That’s right, Charleston’s Green Happy Hour is on the road again after gathering at Go Green Night last month. I’on Group is hosting the party in the Mixson neighborhood in Park Circle. Coast Brewing Company will be on hand with free beverages, which will go nicely with the jazz and “hard hat” tours of available […]

I am now an Ambrose Family Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member. On Wednesday evening, I picked up the first summer harvest from a volunteer’s home in Park West, Mt. Pleasant. We emptied the box and filled one of my canvas bags with cobs of corn, onions, carrots, yellow and green squash, cucumbers, beets, kale, […]

Prius Update :: It Works!

OK, so it got pummeled by golfball-sized hail, but my Prius is truly a cool piece of technology. The greenie in me loves the high-mileage low-impact stats, but the geek in me loves the intricate hybrid power system. Learning to trick out my foot to maximize mpg is just the start of it. I’m already […]
