A big part of charting our family’s progress is keeping track of the “since we’ve used” items (3 years since we’ve used paper napkins, 2.5 years since we’ve used plastic bags, 2 years since we’ve used bottled water, etc). There seem to be many things that end of up in the landfill after once use, […]


Wow, did we really leave that poll up for 4 months? When the year is new, you never know what people are going to do. We asked you what your priorities were for 2009, and the results were interesting. At first, supporting the local economy had a strong lead, but in the end, 43% of […]


Our holiday green poll ending with unsurprising results: A vast majority of Go Green readers were consuming less this holiday season as a way to increase their sustainability. In troubled economic times, it makes as much financial sense as green sense to cut the consumerism cord. But don’t cut all the way – support the […]


Thanks to everyone who took our Summer energy savings poll. The results showed that most of us are doing little things like adjusting thermostats and opening windows to reduce the burden on our A/C units. A few folks were using solar and attic fans, two things we want implement here at our home. Since Fall […]


A couple months ago, we asked our readers how they were buying local food. With oil prices at an all-time-high, cooking with locally grown food can greatly reduce your impact on the environment (and save some serious cash too!) We had 99 respondents at the time of this writing, and over 40% were shopping at […]


Charleston Wants to Buy Locally

Back in January, we asked a simple question: What was your top green resolution for 2008? As the early votes came in, the energy-related choices were slightly ahead. But as time went on, the choice became clear — Charleston, you want to buy local food and products! Out of 130 respondents, 20% of you resolved […]


Turning landfill-bound kitchen waste into rich gardening soil is a very sustainable practice, even in tiny suburban-sized doses. I love the idea of using free homemade soil to enrich the garden plot I’m using to grow some summer veggies, all while learning loads about biology, chemistry, and patience. Composting is a green activity that’s a […]


Thanks to everyone who participated in our cardboard recycling poll. We had 50 responses at the time of this post, and I’m very impressed with the results. It seems most of us are recycling our cardboard, despite not having curbside pickup. Keep it up, and let’s keep that cardboard out of the landfill. I’ve spoken […]


Canvas Bag Poll Results

Thanks to everyone for participating in the Go Green canvas bag poll. 40% of respondents are using their own canvas bags unless they forget them…I know I’m certainly in this group. And I appreciate the honesty of the 23% who are still using store bags. I was like that less than a year ago, but […]


Hybrid Poll Results

Thanks for participating in our second poll everyone.  It looks like most of our readers will be getting a hybrid when I do: the next time we buy a new car. I bet this is a common strategy that Toyota is counting on, as they ramp up production. They currently have a stranglehold on 80% […]
