Seeking out alternative transportation is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment and save a few bucks. Jen has been blogging about riding the bus and driving abstinence, and I’ve been rocking the hybrid – but are always looking for ways to go farther. We would like to integrate cycling into our […]

We’ve started planting some new flowers in our gardens, so I’ve noticed a buildup of empty plastic plant containers in the garage. Because these containers are typically make from non-recyclable plastics (#4, #5, or #6), most folks just toss them into the trash. But this year we can help you make a change! Last June, […]

World…meet the Charleston Green Living Map – the latest offering from the tech department at Go Green Charleston. We’ve combined all of our former green maps into one ginormous über map. Like all Google-based maps, you can zoom in or out, pan the map North/South/East/West, and click and drag for optimal exploration. To take a […]

I’m pleased to announce the arrival of our latest cartography effort: the Local Green Businesses Map. Visit our refurbished Green Maps section and learn where to find a green home, buy some fair trade goods, or just get a healthy bite to eat. The Charleston-area is teeming with eco-friendly businesses, and as the scene grows […]

It’s no secret that munching on locally grown food can greatly reduce your impact on the environment. The average U.S. meal travels 1500 miles from source to plate, which causes an unnecessarily large carbon footprint because of all the transportation. Every time you buy something grown in the Charleston-area, you are choosing to eliminate your […]

I went kayaking in Charleston harbor on Tuesday courtesy of Coastal Expeditions. While there, I stumbled upon the Greater Charleston GreenMap. It’s a traditional map of the greater Charleston area, but with all kinds of green locations highlighted. It’s a map that identifies, promotes, and links eco and cultural resources. It’s about everyday choices, specific […]

New Go Green Map

I just finished another Go Green Map featuring locations where you can drop off used plant containers. These items are limited to round pots, flats, and trays. Not much, I know, but reducing our impact means resuing everything we can. And until biodegradable pots are the norm, or Charleston County starts recycling plastics 3-6, reusing […]

Recycling Used Plant Pots

The more I look at my consumption, the more things I find that can be eliminated, reused, or recycled. Since we just went through the beginning of gardening season, the pile of pots, trays, and flats from our plant purchases has swelled. These pots and trays are typically made from non-recyclable plastics, probably for economic […]

Go Green Recycling Map

I’m starting to make some headway on the Recycling Map, but it’s taking longer than I anticipated. Getting coordinates out of Google Maps and into the XML file is pretty time consuming. Though I have managed to get a few on-site photos into the map (see image below). I just think it’s cool to be […]
