While we’re trying to use fewer nasty chemicals around the house, we still end up with leftover paint, gas, cleaners, antifreeze, and other sludge that needs to be disposed of properly…which can sometimes be challenging. 92% of all poison exposure cases occur in our homes, 87% of which are accidental (makes you wonder about that […]

Hey, Kids are Green Too!

Getting our kids interested in sustainable living is important to us, as the good green habits they develop early in life just might stay with them. Most green activities are fun and full of science, so our boys love getting involved when they can. There are also great youth-focused organizations our there like LEEP, Lowcountry […]

Charleston Green Fair Roundup

I’m still a little blown away by what went down yesterday at the 2008 Charleston Green Fair. I mean, 1st Annual? You would have thought it was the 10th annual. In short, it was an amazing event, and every volunteer, exhibitor, vendor, and Charleston resident should be proud. I had a great time talking to […]

Give Your Green to the GREENS Fund

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 […]

DwellSmart Seminar

This Tuesday, June 3rd, DwellSmart will be hosting a gathering with topics concerning children. Raising our kids in an environmentally sound manner can be daunting. I look forward to hearing about plastics made without BPA and other products that are safe for their well-being. I know DwellSmart has begun to carry GDiapers, hooray! I hope […]

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 […]

Spring is a great time to get out there and enjoy the scene. On May 16 and 17, Natural Awakenings magazine will be hosting South Carolina’s 1st Annual Green Living Festival. There are over 60 exhibitors participating, running the gamut from DwellSmart to chiropractors. Along with prizes and demonstrations, the Festival should provide an healthy […]

I just got back from the Fossil Fools Day demonstration downtown, and I have to say that I was stoked at the amount of attention the Alliance for Planet Earth (C of C’s student-run environmental group) was able to bring to this issue. The TV stations and newspapers were all there, and heard about how […]
