What really makes this site useful is the amazing ideas we get from readers just like you. Leaving comments here on the blog is a great way to help the community by sharing your knowledge. Check out some of the great ideas that readers have recently left…

On Mt. Styrofoam, Jaime says:

Have you guys heard of the Laptop Lunchbox? It is completely waste free and sooo easy to use. I have gotten many families at my sons’ school to switch to it and they rave about it. They truly are wastefree and would radically change any schools lunch time.

On The New Charleston Green is Not for Sale, Jen Hartz Pulsifer says:

I encourage everyone to read the book “Animal Vegetable Miracle” by Barbara Kingsolver. It speaks directly to what Jennifer Mathis refers to… the best start for all of us is to pay attention to where our food comes from- and to buy, or grow, accordingly. The Slow Food movement is gaining strength in Charleston, check it out.

On Bottled Water is Sooooo Out, Eric Watson says:

I have stopped using water bottles altogether (and my husband is getting pretty good at it too). In fact, I don’t go anywhere without my trusty Life is Good. Nalgene bottle these days!

On Reducing your Garbage is Easy, Paul Says:

We recycle everything we can, especially paper, compost organics (including unrecyclable paper shreds like paper towels (the unbleached, 100% recycled ones from Publix), coffee grounds and banana peels from work, dog/cat hair and yard clippings). Our dogs consume most of our food scraps and their poop is shoveled into a border, the ivy loves it!

Publix will take plastic bags, brown paper bags and styrofoam egg cartons and containers, so we take those there.

On Bottled Water-free Summer a Success, Catherine says:

I’ve given up bottled water as well. After seeing all of the bottles lining the marsh by the Pitt Street Bridge in Mt. Pleasant, I went out and bought Sigg water bottles for the family. Now we just fill them up with water from the fridge and go. Our grocery bills are lighter as are our recylce bins. It has been a great decision for us and we don’t miss them at all!

That’s all for now. Please keep reading and commenting – you all really make this place come to life, and the more we share the greater an impact we’ll have.
