Did you know that an American family of four on average consumes up to 260 gallons of water around the home daily? Everyday household activities such as washing dishes, showering, flushing toilets, and washing clothes use the most water. Roughly one-third of the world’s population live in areas where water is scarce. Southern California is one of the many areas that can face severe droughts.
Here at Le Med Apartments, it is our goal to protect the environment and promote an eco-friendly lifestyle—not just by preserving water, but also by reducing unnecessary waste. Here are three ways we are committed to living green at Le Med Apartments!
We Conserve Water
Since Azusa is prone to droughts, we do all we can to use water sparingly. Here are a few examples:
- We have drought-tolerant landscaping, which means we use common desert plants, such as succulents, that don’t require much water.
- We installed a drip irrigation system.
- We replaced some grass and mulch areas with beautiful stone. This allows us to save gallons of water!
- We have low-flow toilets, which use about 20 percent less water than regular toilets. (Most toilets use about 3.5 gallons of water every time they flush, but not ours!) Each low-flow toilet can surprisingly save up to 13,000 gallons of water per year.
We Conserve Paper and Plastic
At Le Med Apartments, we go paperless by making rent payments, service requests, applications, and notices all online. Not only is this convenient for our residents, but it eliminates the need for unnecessary paper waste. In addition to this, we have a water bottle refill station throughout the property, significantly reducing the waste from plastic water bottles.
In our community, we strive to provide quality services to help make your life as a resident a little easier. Visit our new resident portal to pay your rent online, enter a maintenance service request, browse our calendar for upcoming activities, and much more!
We Promote Recycling
One of the best ways we promote living green is by recycling. To encourage our residents to live more green, we have recycling bins in our office for all residents and employees to use. Common items you can recycle include plastic bottles and containers, empty cans, paper, and flattened cardboard. Remember, you cannot recycle food, liquid, plastic bags, plastic wrap, or cups with wax or plastic coating.
Here in Azusa, there are multiple recycling stations available to the public. This small habit of living green can improve our environment.
We’re Excited to Announce Organic Waste Recycling!
Organic waste recycling will be coming soon to our local community, and we can’t wait to participate! This initiative will help keep millions of pounds of food waste out of landfills and turn them into compost and renewable natural gas. We’ll keep you up to date as this program expands throughout the state.
We love living green and hope our residents do, too! If you are looking for an apartment complex that cares as much about the earth as you do, Le Med Apartments is the perfect place for you! Call us today for more information.
