It seems forever ago since champagne bottles and fireworks were popping in celebration of 2011. Now it’s back to work, back to school, but onto another great year in La Mesa, CA’s signature apartment community just of the Grossmont Trolley line.
While I know everyone has been buzzing about making and keeping your resolutions, I’ll offer an overall solution to make your 2011 an overall healthy and productive year, no matter what your goals may be.
You might be surprised how super easy and equally inexpensive it is to live a Green year. In fact, many of your environmentally friendly decisions can actually SAVE you money throughout the year in Alterra. Here are some simple ideas for stating your new path to Green enlightenment.
1. Reusable shopping bags. Let the grocery store deal with their crinkly mess of paper and plastic. A large resusable shopping bag is less than $3 and carry a great load of items without worrying about tearing or breaking.
2. Eat organic. There’s something satisfying about food that’s free of the chemical treatment and processing. Check for organic labels in your nearby Trader Joe’s or visit La Mesa’s Farmer’s Market every Friday from 3-6PM.
3. Recycle all you can. Alterra supports your green living by supplying on-site recycling for paper, plastics, batteries, and more. Take advantage of these amenities and learn what else can be recycled or reused.
