Global Warming Guy

Our good friends over at the Coastal Conservation League have just released Global Warming Guy, a light hearted take on a serious issue: global climate change. The goal of this video is to educate viewers on the issue and encourage them to follow links to CCL’s website to learn more. It’s a great video and […]

We’re always trying to bring you coverage of local environmental news, so here are three stories that caught my eye this week. Alliance for Planet Earth Cleans up C of C Campus College of Charleston students and faculty got out last weekend to perform trash audits around campus. The group, formally knows as the Alliance […]

Open Doors Are Everywhere

I think the retailers at the Mount Pleasant Town Center are trying to create a micro-climate out on the sidewalks – a land where it’s always cool and dry, and energy is generated via the swiping of credit cards. This phenomenon of keeping doors open to attract shoppers is hideous, and flat out embarrassing in […]

One week after I discovered that Limited Brands management was asking store employees to leave the doors open, nothing has changed. I walked by the stores on an 85° evening, and the doors were wide open again (see new photos), allowing energy-intensive cold air to spill out onto the sidewalk. When I spoke to the […]

Carbon-neutral Road Trip

When I wrote about road trip recycling and other things last week, I forgot to mention that I finally purchased some carbon offsets for my vehicle. We’ve made major efforts to green up our summer traveling (recycling, cruise control, slower speeds, tire pressure, filling up at night, etc.), so offsetting our vehicle’s carbon emissions was […]

I’m in some sort of green-shock after walking by a couple of Mount Pleasant Town Center stores this weekend whose doors were wide open. It was hot, and Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works were the only stores brazen enough to coax foot traffic off the sidewalk with energy-guzzling cold air. This marketing tactic […]

Just a quick reminder that the South Carolina Change the Climate Concert is tomorrow night at the Music Farm (the show starts at 8 p.m.) If you can make it (right now I don’t have a sitter!), this is great opportunity to join the rest of the world in an effort to save our planet.  […]

Looks like the official site is up for South Carolina’s very own Friends of Live Earth event. The South Carolina Change the Climate Concert will allow Lowcountry residents to join two billion people on seven continents to help solve the climate crisis. Here are the details: What: South Carolina “Change the Climate” Concert Who: Analog […]

This is the kind of local green news I like to post – even if it’s a few weeks old. Apparently Half-Moon Outfitters is building a new distribution center they hope will obtain South Carolina’s first LEED Platinum certification. A sustainable building is a great way to show off green technologies and encourage other businesses […]

On 7.7.07, Live Earth will be holding concerts around the world to bring together 2 billion participants to help solve the climate crisis. The League of Conservation Voters is hosting our local event, and information is starting to trickle in. John Ramsburgh says, The League of Conservation Voters has picked Charleston not only because of […]
