When living in a big city, it can be difficult to remember that we each have a carbon footprint and we need to reduce it. Actually, living in a big city might drive this fact home for some people, but others may be too busy being caught up in the city life to pay any attention to the fact that we are slowly killing our environment. If you are one of the latter group but are still concerned about the environment, then a green apartment might be something for you to look into.
If you live on Staten Island, there are green apartments available. Staten Island green apartments are apartments that are not too hard to find. Just do a Google search on green living in Staten Island and you will find plenty of them. Green apartments are ones that are environmentally friendly…or as much as they can be. They will be insulated well so as to ensure heating and cooling energy conservation, they will have shower heads that conserve water. These green apartments will more than likely promote recycling. They may even have put solar panels in place for energy conservation.
You can do your part too even in your apartment. By keeping your air filters clean, you will avoid sucking in the trash from dirty ones as well as helping your air conditioner to run more efficiently, thus saving energy. You can also make sure to only run your dishwasher or washing machine when you have a full load. This will help conserve water. If you have a dog, then make sure you are using the doggie doo bags that are biodegradable.
We should all be doing our part for the environment and really when you look at the little things like the ones I just mentioned, it really isn’t all that hard.
