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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Birthday Ideas for Hubby

Guess what? Chad is turning 40 this week! OK, he’s not, if he wants his age known, he’ll tell. Chad’s birthday is an opportunity to consume wisely. I began with gifts from the boys. We visited The Sea Turtle Rescue Hospital at the Aquarium. We have proudly adopted for Daddy. We can’t wait to visit […]

There’s Life at the LEEP Blog

There’s been activity over at the LEEP blog! It looks like they are in the middle of a new project called Web of Water. It’s always nice to see other lowcountry green bloggers kicking it. So Give ’em a look, leave a comment, add them to your reader – all encouragement to share, share, share.

I gotta give a shout out to the good folks over at the Lowcountry Open Land Trust. They recently purchased a 63-acre tract of land on the Ashley River that was destined for development. As a result, LOLT is making sure that a public park is being built instead. This is a great example of […]

There’s a New Store in Town

So you have accepted the realities of how global warming is changing our planet and you want to make some changes – great! Where do you start? Years ago I would search the web for current info, particularly when I was building a house. Yet the information and product knowledge wasn’t always easy to discern. […]

Alternative Energy Meetup Recap

Despite the dreary weather last night, about 25 of us made it to the Charleston Alternative Energy Meetup at Huger’s Restaurant. These monthly meetings are hosted by local greenlebrity Ian Sanchez, and bring together a wide range of people interested in biodiesel, solar, wind, wave, and nuclear energy. The meeting kicked off with a 30-minute […]


Chad was suffering from a drippy cold, and came home with two boxes of Kleenex. I’m pretty sure I made an audible gasp when I saw those cute designer boxes, but I said nothing to Chad. He had a bad cold after all. I mean, have you ever seen his nose? I used a few […]

Lately, we’ve been noticing how little garbage we have around our house. So much so, that I only have to take my big brown trash bin down to the curb every three weeks (still too much IMHO). I used to fill it up to the top every week, but now it takes 3 weeks! For […]
