7 Ways for Your Property to GO GREEN!

Learn how to do your part in creating a more sustainable travel industry!

Sustainable living benefits us all. There are simple ways to make your property more eco-friendly, saving you money and even creating a new niche of followers!

Switch Lights Bulbs to LED

They may initially be more expensive than average halogen; however, these bulbs produce 70%-90% less heat, reducing the risk of fires or burnt fingers. In addition, using these bulbs makes them safer for your guests, and easier on your wallet long-term. 

Try Solar

Incorporating solar is a great way to make your property greener by reducing your carbon footprint and ultimately slashing your utility bill. In addition, many states offer grants and tax-saving initiatives!

Switch to Energy-Saving Appliances

Upgrade your appliances to Energy Star Certified. On average, 13% of your energy bill is from appliances alone. Switching to energy-efficient ones will help cut down on that cost. Additionally, they use less water. 

Choose Native Plants

By adding native plants and trees to your landscape, you allow less water to be used for irrigation. While this means less maintenance, it also means less use of nature's resources! In areas with droughts, that's a BIG deal. Plus, native plants typically don't need fertilizers or pesticides. As an added bonus, the local wildlife and insects reap the benefits of your naturally greener yard. 

Install Smarter Appliances

From smart air conditioners to the Nest Thermostat and motion sensors that turn lights on and off, there are plenty of ways to keep the cost down and the environment friendly! Although these powerful devices sound pricey, many are on the market for a variety of price ranges and functions. 

Have Recycle Bins Available

Providing bins on the premises is one of the easiest eco-friendly upgrades you can make. Take it even further and switch to biodegradable/compostable trash bags. Their average plastic trash bag takes ten years to disintegrate in a landfill. Biodegradable certified compostable trash bags take 3-6 months. It's a small change that can have a considerable positive impact on our earth! 

Cut Down on Single-use Plastics

This includes mini shower gel and shampoo bottles. If you insist on using individual packages and not refillable bottles, look for plant-based or recycled plastic.
