Luxury Atlanta Apartment Herb GardenLooking for ways to make luxury Atlanta apartment living more eco-friendly? Consider a few helpful tips for going green in an apartment setting from the blog of one of Atlanta’s premiere luxury apartment buildings,

Kingsboro.

  • Use it or lose it: Unplug electronics that aren’t in use. Even when they’re in “sleep” mode they are still eating a lot more energy and money than you think. Similarly, turn off all of the lights when you leave a room.
  • Make energy efficient: Need to replace an old appliance? Look for energy-efficient models.
  • Switch it up: Start using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) instead of incandescent bulbs. CFL uses less wattage by making light instead of converting light into heat.
  • Get growing: Visit local farmer’s markets to pick up fresh produce or plant your own herb garden on your windowsill.
  • Wishy washy: Washing your laundry on the cold setting can conserve about 80 percent of the energy used in a hot setting.
  • Cut it short: Conserve water by taking shorter showers and turning the water off while you’re brushing your teeth.
  • Reuse, reduce: Lessen your carbon footprint by printing on recycled paper, filling reusable water bottles and using cloth napkins. All of these simple switches create less waste!
