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 […]


You probably already know that drinking bottled water is one of the least green things you can do. I’ve blogged about this before, and I haven’t had even a sip of bottled water since June 2007. At any rate, one of the big stories this week is how pharmaceutical drugs are showing up in our […]


If only I didn’t have a day job, I wouldn’t get scooped by The Post and Courier all the time! But good thing they’re around, or we’d miss out on some important green stories. Here are some local environmental stories I thought you might be interested in: Solar Interest Shines; Incentives a Bit Dull Shifts […]


If you’re like me, chances are that deep in your closet, you too have a box of things that is labeled, “stuff.” And in it, most likely, is that old cell phone that you just didn’t know what to do with, so you stashed it in stuff purgatory. Well fear no more, there is a […]


Mmmmm, Prius Sandwich

Ever since a Hummer began showing up in the parking lot where I work, I’ve been dying to get a shot of it next to one of the many Priuses. Well today was the day, and to make it even sweeter, a Chevy Suburban was parked on the other side forming a veritable eco-sandwich. A […]


Wanna get your feet wet with a little environmental cleanup? Check out the 2007 Sea Grant Beach Sweep/River Sweep on September 15, where volunteers from around the lowcountry remove aquatic debris from local beaches, rivers, lakes, and marshes. Since launching in 1988, it has become South Carolina’s largest one-day volunteer cleanup event. And on top […]


Before you jump in for a swim or embark on a fun day of kayaking in rivers across South Carolina, you may want to check the water quality. According to a study released by the South Carolina Sierra Club Water Committee, 31 percent of the waterways in South Carolina are unsafe for recreation due to […]


Green Notes from the Road

On my recent road trip, I spent some time in Northern Indiana. Amish communities dot every county, so examples of sustainability where everywhere. This time I really noticed all the recumbent bikes…they seemed to be everywhere. I also liked the road side pool/pond we drove by, complete with concrete deck, diving boards, and slides. Good […]


Just the other day, I blogged about how the Mount Pleasant town council is grumpy about raising our stormwater fees in order to monitor pollutants. The increase is in response to a federally mandated program geared at protecting our environment and educating the public on how runoff from rainwater can contaminate our waterways. The town […]


Ahh, serendipity. I was about to blog about how the Mt. Pleasant Stormwater Utility Program just sent around a newsletter with their annual bill (Check out the previous years). It’s a fine little doc, and has important info about keeping pollutants out of the storm drains, yadda yadda yadda. Then today I read in the […]
