Ahhh, Green 2.0 is alive and well in Charleston!

Social Networking has transformed the way businesses and organizations connect, engage, and converse with their audience. I think connecting online is a natural fit for the sustainability movement, as it has less of an impact on the planet than face-to-face, print, or event-based communication. Plus, an anti-social greenie is hard to find!

Here at Go Green Charleston we’ve been using social web services like Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr to do those same things, and have really enjoyed connecting with all of you. Other Charleston-area green organizations and businesses are doing the same thing…

Here’s a roundup of local green Facebook, Twitter, and other social goodness:

Local Green Facebook Groups and Pages

Local Green Twitter Feeds

In addition, there are other local green outposts on the social web. The Coastal Conservation League has an amazing YouTube presence. You can check out Charleston Alternative Energy, the Alt. Energy Meetup‘s online community. Fields to Families has been using Flickr to share photos online, as well as Charleston Moves, Half Moon Outfitters, and Go Green Charleston.

Local green blogs are another great place to network with local greenies. Blogs don’t typically work like social networks, but they do bring communities of like-minded individuals together around a common interest. Here are some of the local green blogs that we’ve been reading…

As you can see, Charleston green social roots run deep – something that certainly bodes well for a local sustainable future. Take a look at some of the sites above, get connected, and enjoy our thriving local scene!

If you know of a local green organization or business that is using the social web to connect with its audience, please let us know.
