If you haven’t already started to adapt to eco-friendly products and living habits—there’s never been a better time than now. So many companies and retailers have produced sustainable products that don’t break the bank. We at Marquette Management have three easy and cost-efficient ways to reduce your carbon footprint inside an apartment

Composting Bin

Yes, you can have a compost bin in your apartment—and no, it won’t smell. These compact bins are easy to use and allow you to throw in recyclables and compost. If you’re looking to take things to the next level, invest in a countertop food waste recycler. Whichever route you decide to take, you’ll notice not as many trips to the dumpster and a sense of pride for living more sustainably.

Eco-Friendly Products

There is an abundance of small things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. Check out these bamboo toothbrushes that are biodegradable and come in multi-packs for friends and family who stay with you. These reusable grocery bags are ideal for cutting back on plastic waste, along with these sandwich bags that you can wash in the dishwasher. Another quick way to make the Earth happy is switching to paperless billing—simple as that.

Indoor Plants

Give your apartment a makeover by purchasing some houseplants. The new greenery will liven up smaller spaces and bring some color into your life. Areca PalmsRubber Plants, and Dracaena all make excellent roommates and work to purify the air and remove toxins. Perhaps you want to cut down on consuming and grow your own indoor herbs

Making the switch doesn’t have to be as hard as it sounds. Reducing your carbon footprint is a simple yet significant step in helping our environment and reducing waste. Marquette is happy to introduce new and useful ways to improve your lifestyle.
