How do I help make my Full Sail apartment environmentally friendly?

There are many simple changes that can be made to help make your Full Sail apartment more environmentally friendly. These things can be done without costing you a fortune or forcing you to make drastic lifestyle changes.


One of the easiest ways to make your Full Sail apartment greener is through the simple act of recycling. Every apartment building or complex near Full Sail should have a recycling area. This area contains colorized bins that separate glass, plastic, paper and cardboard materials from the rest of your garbage. This ensure the materials are sent to a recycling center for repurposing, rather than into a landfill. A convenient way to organize your Full Sail apartment's recycling is by keeping an additional trash can in your kitchen designated for recyclable materials. This keeps you from digging through your trash later to pick out all of the recyclables.


Another way to be eco friendly in your Full Sail apartment is to turn off the air conditioner while you aren't home. There is no real need to keep an empty apartment cool. While coming home to a cool apartment on a hot summer day is refreshing, air conditioners use a tremendous amount of energy. This is especially true during the summer months when air conditioners have to work overtime to keep your Full Sail apartment cool.


Your Full Sail apartment can even be environmentally friendly from the products you choose to buy from the store and what you use to carry them home! Try to pick out cleaning supplies with natural ingredients to avoid harmful chemicals from flowing down your apartment's sink or shower drain. Also, try to make sure the napkins or paper towels you buy are made from recycled materials, or do even better by wasting and reusing cloth towels to avoid paper waste all together. Once you have picked out your eco friendly product for your Full Sail apartment, bring them home in reusable canvas shopping bags. This cuts out the need for plastic bags, which take many years to decompose in landfills.
