Keeping Green

Working to constantly reduce your carbon footprint will create a healthier living space. Simple daily habits can conserve energy and natural resources. 

Quick tips to keep your home green:


1. Turn off lights when leaving a room.
2. Take showers instead of baths when you can, and limit your time in the shower.
3. Don't leave the faucet running when brushing your teeth. 
4. Make the most use out of dishwasher and laundry loads.
