Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Bailey Parker, executive director, Gills Creek Watershed Assn., talk about watersheds and why they are important. She says think of it as a catch basin—every bit of water that comes into that point is the watershed.

They also discuss:

  • How urbanization is impacting watersheds and why every little act counts.
  • What happened following the flood of 2015 when Gills Creek broke through dams and destroyed homes.
  • The Gills Creek Watershed Assn., the Adopt a Stream program, the Watershed Champion program, and how it fits into what South Carolina is doing.
