Park It for World Carfree Day 2008

Speaking of parking, Monday is World Carfree Day 2008 – a day to ditch our cars and seek alternative transportation. We often ride our bikes to the park, pool, and store when possible, Jen rides the bus, and we often shoot for one weekend day to be car free.  It would be tough to give […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Bio Energy in the Lowcountry

Yesterday, more than a few friends and readers pointed me to the Post & Courier article about how International Bio Energy is considering building a new ethanol plant here in the Lowcounty. This would be a real sign that our region is serious about a greener future, provide people with a fuel alternative, and bring […]
