With all the Earth day events going on not only on April 22, but all week, it’s inspiring to see the region’s commitment to our environment! The Charleston Young Professionals group held a “Get on the Bus” tour, followed by a Green Expo at 10 Storehouse Row on The Navy Yard at Noisette.
You think bus, you think “that’s not green”…well this is no ordinary bus… it’s the LEEP (Lowcountry Environmental Education Programs) Biodiesel bus! It’s an old school bus (with cool paintings inside and out done by local children), but runs on biodiesel. So innovative! The tour went to various locations throughout Noisette (Mixson, Horizon Village, Oak Terrace Preserve, Riverfront Park) and really opened everyone’s eyes to all the AMAZING things going on in our region! If you haven’t done so, give yourself a tour, or call up the guys at Noisette because they’d love to tell you about it!
The Expo then had 20ish local companies/groups showcasing their best green attributes. There was everything imaginable… Office Depot with their recyclable Post-its, local farmers had veggies for sale (and delish sausage!) Lowcountry Local First, bath and body products, and pottery artists. Local artwork was showcased all over too!
Thanks to the organizers of this event! It was a great success and reminder of what we should all do throughout the year!
