Like a lot of you, the ample supply of local water has become threaded into my family life. We play in the marsh behind our house, swim at the beach, fish in the creeks, and surf in the ocean. We love it all, and I bet you do too. That’s why we all need to […]

The Sustainability Institute has been hosting Charleston Water Week to help encourage local residents to conserve this precious resource. And since we want to help the cause, we’re featuring different water-related nonprofits that serve our local community.

The Sustainability Institute is sponsoring Charleston Water Week to increase awareness around the conservation of our most precious resource – H2O. We want to help the cause, so each day this week we are featuring a different water-related nonprofit serving our local community.

The great peeps over at The Sustainability Institute are sponsoring Charleston Water Week – a week-long celebration and educational series about water-related issues facing our community and planet. Water conservation and protection is becoming more and more important as potable water supplies diminish, so I think it’s great that the extra attention is being given […]

Chad and I have been lacto-ovo-vegetarians for over a decade. In my opinion, humans are […]

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 […]

I just got the September edition of “Water Lines“, Mount Pleasant Waterworks newsletter, and they have a great list of water saving tips that I thought I’d share. And I have to say, I love the fact that an organization that makes money from the amount of water we use is encouraging us to conserve. […]
