Archive for 'Water'

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 […]

Bottled water is a huge environmental issue, both in the amount of plastic waste created and the needless carbon produced during the processing and transport stages. This is a topic we’ve covered pretty extensively at Go Green with Chad’s ongoing initiative to avoid bottled water altogether, an effort I think we’ve all adopted. If you […]

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 […]

It’s been 2.5 months now since I pledged to have a bottled water-free summer, and I have to tell you it’s been pretty easy so far. If I travel with my canteen-style water bottle, I never have a need to buy one. I just fill it up at a sink or drinking fountain, and I’m […]

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 […]

Local Green Roundup

Here are a few stories I found that I thought you might want to see: Walking and biking are great ways to decrease your impact. Now you can hop on the Ravenel bridge and go a 1/2 mile longer. The turtles are back on Folly and IOP! I found the LEEP blog, but it doesn’t […]

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 […]

Traveling Green Recap

Last week I blogged about some of my strategies for traveling green on my 5-day trip to Vancouver, so I thought a quick update was in order. By carrying my Nalgene with me, I avoided using bottled water with little difficulty – despite seeing thousands of them during the conference and at the airport. Recycling […]

Well I’m off to Vancouver, British Columbia for 5 days. I’m really stoked for the trip, but concerned about my greenness. Traveling always makes things difficult because I get out of my routine. Plus, at airports and hotels, everything seems to be disposable. Jet fuel aside, just getting through all my meals without generating piles […]

Do any of you remember it being this dry in Spring? At least the Post and Courier is talking about it, but I didn’t see any info on what we should do to conserve water. During times of drought, or near drought, water conservation is an important way to take the edge off of dwindling […]
