April 22, 2021 is Earth Day!
We know that both businesses and individuals play a role in influencing our planet and the environment that we live in. Even small, daily actions can make a massive impact over time. Don’t underestimate the power you have to make a positive change!
Here are 5 things property managers can do to help protect the earth:
Single stream recycling is an easy option for all residents to use. Encourage more recycling by adding bins in community areas that may only have trash receptacles. Consider an area for boxes as part of your package management system. The increase of deliveries means more waste that can be recycled.
Consistent preventative maintenance is key to finding and preventing leaks. Budget for efficient equipment with new technology whenever possible. Low-flow toilets, shower heads, and faucets are a great start.
Share community data on daily utility consumption. Discuss impactful ways to lower utility bills while helping the environment.
Plant a tree each year. This is great for community curb appeal and better for the environment. Consider offering a community garden for resident use if space allows.
Encouraging bicycling as an alternative form of transportation. You can offer bike storage, designated riding paths, and repair stations.
