Every day, I look for new ways to reduce my impact on this planet.  I loved Annie Leonard’s The Story of Stuff the first time I watched it, and I believe this is going to be one of our culture’s toughest challenges as we move towards a sustainable future. One of the biggest uses of […]


As cheesy as it sounds, Whitney Houston was right on the money when she sang, “I believe the children are our future; Teach them well, and let them lead the way,” in The Greatest Love of All. I mean, that makes as much sense today as it did in 1985, especially when talking about the […]


It’s back to school time! Well, for us, this is our first jump into the wonders of public school (Kindergarten, here we come!) Leading up to the big day, one question has been popular in the conversations: Will he ride the bus? We have lived in our neighborhood for 8 years, and I have never […]


A few weeks ago, Go Greener Melanie Milonas handed me a copy of Shade of Green Magazine, and I thought: how exciting it was that another piece of the local green puzzle had fallen into place! With a SMART car on its cover, the inaugural issue was off to the races. Publisher Robin Jarvis has […]


I just got word via my favorite local news site, The Digitel, that Charleston County Recycling now has the ability to collect and recycle compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). This is great news, as you probably know that CFLs are full of nasty stuff like mercury. Also, since a lot of Charleston’s trash is incinerated […]

My goal to go emissions-free in my yard was put on hold this summer when I decided not to purchase that reel mower I had my eye on. I did, however, go through with my plans to seek an alternative to my loud, gas-fueled weed eater. It’s now August, so I’m calling it – my […]


We love getting press for the site, but I was blown away by Skirt! Charleston‘s article on fellow Go Greener Jennifer Norman. She’s been blazing a trail for our family, and has taught me to try and live each day a little greener than the last. I love her quote: I’m certainly not the greenest […]


Woohoo, save the date! The Charleston Green Fair is coming to Marion Square on September 28. The Fair will focus on promoting local green businesses and nonprofits, sharing ideas and technologies, and offering a sustainable event geared for the whole family. Brought to you by Evergreen Concepts and The Charleston City Paper, the organizers are […]
