How to create a more sustainable home

Try a few new ways to go green at home.
Recycling is the norm in most communities today. You probably want to make more of an effort to protect the environment beyond recycling. Here are a few methods to implement to save the planet in effective yet convenient ways.

Go "green" with your coffee. Brew a cup of certified organic coffee that is grown under sustainable conditions. If you use a "pod" type of coffee maker, buy reusable pods. This will help you save money as well. If you prefer your local coffee shop, take your own cup – not only will you eliminate waste, you might get a discount.
Switch from paper napkins and towels to cloth. A modest investment, these will last for years and add a touch of elegance to everyday dinners. Keep a stash of microfiber cloths handy and use them for mopping up spills or cleaning windows and the bathroom instead of paper towels. And linen towels will do a better job of drying your dishes than paper ones.
Practice conservation in your closet. By creating a "capsule" wardrobe of fewer but higher quality pieces, you'll feel like you have more clothing and will avoid wasting money on cheaper garments you'd throw away. When you clean out your closet, donate to a charity or a shelter in need. Some companies recycle used t-shirts or treadless athletic shoes to create new products. Finally, return dry-cleaning hangers, so they can be reused.

Simple tips like these can create a happier, healthier and more valuable home. Thank you for thinking of us for all of your real estate needs, and be sure to share our contact information with anyone you know of looking to buy, sell or invest in a home.
