Go Green in Your Clackamas Apartments

It seems a lot these days like being environmentally-cautious is more of a trend than a serious movement. Although the phrase “going green” is thrown around a lot, let’s examine what it really means. It means taking care of the Earth, knowing we aren’t going to be its last inhabitants, and taking steps to make sure that its resources are sustainable. Did you know that it doesn’t take much to go green in your Clackamas apartments? There are just a few things you need to make sure you do in order for you to reduce your footprint and help contribute to a more sustainable earth.

Here are some of the tips:
1. Be conscientious about how much waste you leave behind. If there are any ways for you to cut down on napkins, plastic utensils, and plastic plates, that would be ideal. The greater the amount of waste you leave behind, the bigger impact you leave on the already polluted world. Try using regular dishes and utensils, even during parties or get-togethers, to do your part and save the environment.
2. Be wary of how much electricity you use. This is especially true if you’re home for long hours of the day or you work from home. Sometimes you may be using a ton of lights when you can just open your curtains and use natural daylight. Think of how much you’d be saving on your utilities by doing this too!
3. Grow vegetables and spices from home, if possible. This reduces trips to the market in your vehicle, keeps the air clean and healthy in your apartments, and makes it super convenient to use foods right beside you.

As you can see, the tips mentioned above actually have other benefits as well as saving the planet: saving you money! Instead of wasting earth’s resources and you’re money, perhaps it’s time to change your habits and go green! Are you going to go green in your Clackamas apartments? Let us know in the comments!
