Green Living and Apartment Living Can Go Hand in Hand With These Tips

Green Living and Apartment Living Can Go Hand in Hand With These TipsIncorporating green tips for apartment living into your everyday routine at Signature Pointe is not only inspiring and enlightening, but it can also be fun! Below, we offer a few green living tips that residents of our Kent apartments can take advantage of this summer to live more responsibly and wholesomely. 

  • Avoid waste and recycle – Much of the content in landfills is made up of empty plastic bottles. Use faucet water rather than bottled water when possible to avoid adding to the waste. 
  • Unplug appliances when they’re not in use – Even if you’re not using appliances, they can still consume energy if they’re plugged in. Unplug small appliances when not in use, including cell phone chargers and coffee makers. 
  • Pay attention to the thermostat – A difference of only two or three degrees on the thermostat can have a large impact on energy consumption. Keep your thermostat down in winter and up in the summer to maximize the efficiency of your home’s climate control system.
