We’ve Done It! TriVista Is Proud To Announce Green Globe Certification
Trivista on Speer is proud to announce that we’ve been given the Green Globe certification! We sought certification because we know how important it is to protect the environment and protect our community. We’re especially proud that our certification has come in time to celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
What Is Green Globe Certification?
Before a business can be Green Globe certified, it must implement a sustainability management system, must make positive contributions to social and economic factors in the community, must support cultural heritage and must protect the environment. This criteria may sound simple, but it’s not! You can read more about Green Globe Certification on the Green Globe website.
What Can You Do to Make Your Apartment “Green”?
You can take part in the greening of our indoor spaces by greening your apartment! Try the following suggestions.
Switch to Reusable Items
Get rid of those old disposable straws and stop using plastic disposable shopping baggies. Make the switch to reusable items. Buy your own reusable shopping bags and buy metal or plastic straws that are NOT meant to be thrown away.
Use Green Cleaning Products
There are many green cleaning products available for sale in stores, but you don’t have to buy green cleaning products to keep them in your house. You can make your own with items that are found in your kitchen, like vinegar and baking soda. Homemade cleaning products make great glass cleaner and multi-surface cleaner.
Use Your Programmable Thermostat
Program your thermostat to turn down (or up) the temperature in your home after you go to bed at night. Adjusting your HVAC system to run less while you’re asleep can save energy in your home, and can save you money as well!
Use Vintage Items
Reusing old items keeps things out of landfills. Discover your love of vintage clothing and furnishings by shopping at consignment shops, used clothing stores and vintage stores. You’ll soon discover that vintage items are a style all their own – and maybe you’ll realize that style matches perfectly with your own personal tastes! Check out Garage Sale Vintage in downtown Denver. You can shop from 30+ vintage vendors while enjoying a cocktail from their drink menu.
Turn Off the Lights
Get in the habit of turning off the lights when you leave the room. Turning off the lights saves energy and saves money as well. If you have a hard time remembering to turn off lights while you’re in the room, consider installing smart light bulbs, which can be turned on or off from your smartphone. You can also plug in your lamps to smart outlets, which you can control with your smartphone.
