How to Celebrate Earth Day at The Vine

With a name inspired by nature, The Vine works to provide environmentally friendly living. Walking on our paths or in our beautiful court yards will give you several reasons to celebrate Earth Day at The Vine. Spend this Earth Day trying these small lifestyle changes, even if it’s for one day, to give back to the earth.

Green Transportation

Leave your car at The Vine for a day by biking. You’ll find everything you need within a 5 to 10 minute ride. For farther away trips, consider a more eco-friendly car or carpooling. We offer electrical vehicle charging stations at The Vine so you can always be charged and ready to reach your destination.

Save Energy

Save on energy by turning lights off and letting natural light in. When you do use lights, turn them off in rooms that aren’t being used. For energy efficient lighting, switch your bulbs to Light Emitting Diode (LED) or Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL). Unplugging unused electrical appliances is another great way to be more energy efficient.

Conserve Water

Conserve water by shortening your shower to a maximum of 10 minutes. Be aware of when you leave the faucet on while doing a separate activity, such as brushing your teeth or shaving. Turn your faucet off when not in use to save water.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Start reducing your waste by shopping smarter. Bring your own reusable bags and purchase items that can be recycled or donated. Most importantly, when purchasing food, don’t buy items that might go bad before you are able to use them. Avoid food spoiling by planning ahead with meal prepping and creating grocery lists.

These tips may seem simple but they can make a huge impact, especially when practiced daily. We hope you feel inspired to celebrate Earth Day at The Vine.
