I just stumbled upon what sounds like a great new local organization called The Sustainable Warehouse. This nonprofit’s mission is to keep usable items out of the landfill by organizing salvage sales here in Charleston. This is not only a great way to reduce garbage, but reduce the demand for new stuff. I mean, a […]


Sorry for the late notice, but I just received word about a Regional Forum this Saturday that will help shape the future of the Charleston-area (thanks Josh!). Our Vision, Our Plan will feature discussions covering community growth, natural resources, quality of life, and more. From the website: Launched in 2008 by the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of […]


OK, It seams like these high gas prices are here to stay. Earlier this month, they finally crossed the $4 mark here in Charleston. While this is bad news for our wallets, it’s good news for the environment. People are driving less, using public transportation more, and buying cars with more efficient engines. Overall, our […]


As you might imagine, we get asked a lot of questions about how to go green here in Charleston. Out of all of those questions, there is one that gets asked more often than all the others: How do I get a blue recycling bin? It’s extremely easy to get a free blue recycling bin […]


I have enjoyed being a member of CSA. Serving meals made with fresh local produce made me proud. As I continue to learn as a homemaker, I realize that the meals I prepare impact our environment. Not only did I learn about different veggies, I tried new recipes. Sure, the beet chips didn’t work out […]


I recently got turned-on to a couple of green blogs (Carolina Green Sense and Charleston Moves Blog), and that got me thinking: Go Green needs a eco blog roll for the Local Guide. Blogging is a great way to reach your audience in an interactive, timely, and inexpensive way – not to mention that it’s […]


Seeking out alternative transportation is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment and save a few bucks. Jen has been blogging about riding the bus and driving abstinence, and I’ve been rocking the hybrid – but are always looking for ways to go farther. We would like to integrate cycling into our […]


I just got word from Jason Cronen, founder of Green Drinks Charleston, that the happy hour is expanding! On August 26th at 6 p.m., the newest Charleston-area chapter of Green Drinks will begin meeting at Queen Anne’s Revenge on Daniel Island. This event will happen on the 4th Tuesday of each month, so check back […]


Driving Abstinence

Hopefully we are all showing some thought to the environment when driving these days. Purchases of hybrid vehicles, public transportation, car-pooling, even hypermiling can all contribute to the causes of these days. Whether your reasons are economic or environmental, we all need to make more changes. I have found that the best way I can […]


There’s nothing we like to see more than a lively discussion here on the blog. That sort of means all this technology is working, and we’re coming together as a community to achieve social change. In the past few months, the discussions have gotten longer, more detailed, and certainly more helpful. To that end, we […]
