So, you want to learn how to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and help protect our planet? Camden is committed to helping our residents live green in their apartment homes. With this guide, you’ll be on your way to reducing your carbon footprint in no time!
1. Take advantage of Valet Living’s recycling program.
If you live at a Camden apartment community, you already have access to an amenity that makes going green in your apartment much easier: Valet Living! They come 5 nights a week to pick up your trash and recycling directly from your doorstep.
Not sure what can or can’t be recycled? No problem! There’s a complete list of what can be recycled on their website.
2. Research renewable energy companies.
Many Camden residents have the ability to choose their electric provider. With so many options out there, why not choose clean energy to power your home? Green Mountain Energy is a great option for Texas residents who are interested in wind power. They even offer a “positive impact calculator”, which will help you determine how much you could be reducing CO2 emissions by switching to clean energy. Not sure if you qualify for this option? Just ask a Camden team member!
3. Use environmentally friendly cleaning products.
All-natural cleaning products aren’t just better for the environment, they can be less expensive, too! With so many people now focusing on living an environmentally conscious lifestyle, there are more green cleaning products to choose from than ever before.
Did you know vinegar and baking soda can get rid of stains on bathroom tile, chrome fixtures, windows, mirrors, and pretty much any other surface? To make your own all-purpose cleaner in bulk, just stir ½ cup of vinegar and ¼ cup of baking soda into a ½ gallon of water. That’s a pet-friendly, kid-friendly, and environmentally-friendly cleaning solution you can feel good about cleaning your apartment home with!
You can make a positive impact on our planet by changing small things about how you live, but where you choose to live can make a big difference, too. If you’re thinking about moving, try to find an apartment home with energy efficient windows and LED lighting. Camden makes it easy for you; just look for the “live green” symbol under the amenities list when you are searching for your new apartment!
