Legacy at Fitz wants to contribute to an eco friendly lifestyle. Here are five easy steps to reduce your environmental impact.
Wash Clothes on Cold Cycle
When washing your clothes in a standard machine, like those at Legacy at Fitz apartments, about 90% of the energy used heats the water. Wash your laundry with cold water improving energy efficiency, great for the environment and your wallet.
Eat More Sustainably
Eating healthy is a great way to be eco friendly. A plant-based diet with locally-produced ingredients goes a long way. At Legacy at Fitz apartments, shopping at farmers’ markets or local grocery stores in Aurora, CO, is easy, with plenty of choices to visit nearby.
Unplug Unused Electronics
Plugged-in electronics waste a lot of energy. Most of the electricity in homes comes from fossil fuels. Unplugging your appliances after use is a simple way to minimize your carbon footprint.
Opt for Reusable Towels & Napkins
Swap to reusable towels & napkins to reduce waste. Paper products create enormous waste. Replacing paper towels with reusable ones diminishes your waste production. Cloth options made from bamboo or other green materials are an eco friendly choice.
Avoid plastic consumption. Lessen your waste production and keep slow-decomposing materials out of Aurora’s landfills. Switching to reusable products such as metal straws, to-go coffee cups, or shopping in-bulk are easy ways to reduce single-use plastics.
Becoming eco-friendly isn’t complicated or time-consuming, but improving your apartments’ sustainability is crucial.
