We’re excited to announce that our friends at Bottles Beverage Superstore in Mt. Pleasant have just launched their Brew Good, Do Good campaign! Now through Labor Day weekend, a portion of sales from EVERY Freehouse Brewing crowler or growler purchase will be donated to Charleston Waterkeeper.

Enjoy great local beer while supporting a great cause! Visit their Mt. Pleasant store today to see what Freehouse beers are on tap at the growler station and pick up a growler or crowler of your favorite. Cheers!

With core values founded in fostering community, High Water Festival announces today the return of its successful Earned Ticket Program, which provided more than 3,000 service hours in 2017 for the festival’s three Charleston, SC-based charity partners: Charleston Waterkeeper, Green Heart Project, and Water Mission. The program, designed to give back in a meaningful way to the greater Charleston community, presents opportunities for those interested in attending High Water to complete a set number of community service hours—specifically for one of the festival’s charitable partners—as an alternate way to earn a ticket to the event weekend, Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22 at Riverfront Park in North Charleston.

More details about the Earned Ticket Program are coming on Friday. Be the first to know – sign up for our newsletter today!

Dear Friends,

I’m writing to share some bad news: the anti-home rule plastic pollution bill is back. The bill, pushed by plastic industry lobbyists at the South Carolina General Assembly, proposes to bar our local cities and towns from taking action to combat plastic pollution at the source.

It’s an affront to South Carolina’s long tradition of home rule. It’s not right. And, we’re going to do something about it.

I believe our local communities are in the best position, very capable, and well equipped to deal with the plastic pollution problem in our local waterways. The City of Isle of Palms and the City of Folly Beach have proven it through strong leadership on this issue. We don’t need interference from plastic lobbyists.

That’s why I’m Columbia today supporting City of Folly Beach Mayor Tim Goodwin and standing up for our local communities and your harbor, rivers, and tidal creeks. I need your help too!

Please contact your state Representative today and ask them to oppose H.3529 (the anti-home rule bill): CharlestonWaterkeeper.org/plastic-pollution. It only takes a few minutes to make a big impact for cleaner, healthier waterways.

Local problems demand local solutions. Together we’ll make that happen. Thank you for your support!

Regards,

Andrew J. Wunderley
Your Charleston Waterkeeper
