How to Live Green at Devonshire
April 30, 2021   |   Jillian Letourneau

Living green and caring a little extra for the planet is something we can all do and incorporate into our daily lives and routines to make the world a better place. These tips to live green at Devonshire will help you make choices that are not only good for the environment, but for you, too! 

The Classic: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

We all know the saying! You’ve been hearing “reduce, reuse, recycle” since you were in grade school. However, knowing the saying and putting it into action in your daily life are two entirely different things. It’s simple, though, and can make a bigger impact on the world around you than you may have ever imagined. Reducing your waste, reusing materials that don’t need to be thrown away, and considering recycling (after confirming your object is recyclable!) before tossing something in the trash absentmindedly are all ways you can easily live greener every day! There are countless ways you can accomplish each of these things, and some are as simple as using a refillable water bottle rather than a disposable plastic one (you can make it fun, and customize reusable bottles with stickers!), or even just making use of those cardboard boxes from your online shopping sprees. Every little bit counts, and you (and Mother Nature) will be glad you made these changes! 

Efficient Appliances

Efficient appliances can save you money and conserve the amount of energy used to power them. Devonshire has you covered, as each apartment is equipped with stainless steel Energy Star, Fisher & Paykel and KitchenAid appliances. This ensures that some of the largest daily sources of energy usage in each living space are efficient for our residents and the environment. 

Sustainable vs. Single Use

In a 24/7, non-stop world, it’s easy to get caught up in consistently choosing convenience over more sustainable choices. Anyone can admit it’s easy to pick up a paper plate in order to reduce the amount of dishes you have to do after a long day of working, and it’s easy to go to the store and use the plastic bags they have on hand rather than bringing reusable totes, eliminating just one more step for you in the grocery shopping process. These are only a few examples, but there are countless ways in which you can eliminate one-time use products out of your life to live greener for yourself and for the environment! Some more examples of making greener choices can include using glass kitchen storage rather than plastic zip-bags, cloth napkins rather than paper towels, reusable straws rather than plastic straws, reusable beverage containers versus one-time use, etc. Choosing these objects and incorporating new habits into your daily routine may take some getting used to, but will be immensely beneficial in the long run for you and for the planet we all share!
