Royal Park Real Estate follows the program of the Go Green campaign. It was initiated and led by management by replacing the light from 13wattage to 8 wattage to keep less consumption with it. In addition, the paper we use a brand that is sympathetic to Go Green we maintained the recycle.

Management also led to using the stairs instead of the elevator to help the consumption of electricity apart from that its affiliates enhances our health. Also preserves the purity by separate disposal of waste biodegradable and non-biodegradable

This campaign is uniting conscious consumers around the world and it seems like everyone’s going green. We’re glad you to take action, too. Luckily, many of the steps we can take to stop climate change can make our lives better.

Royal Park Team believed that the little we can help to our environment and for climate can be conserve properly. 

10 Ways to Go Green and Save Green

1. Save energy to save money.

  • Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees in the higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.
  • Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out.
  • Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Or, use a “smart” power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts “phantom” or “vampire” energy use.
  • Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
  • Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying

2. Save water to save money.

  • Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden. Many plants need minimal watering. Find out which occur naturally in your area.
  • Make sure you have a faucet aerator on each faucet. These in expensive appliances conserve heat and water, while keeping water pressure high.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead. They don’t cost much, and the water and energy savings can quickly pay back your investment.
  • Take shorter showers to reduce water use. This will lower your water and heating bills too.

3. Less gas = more money (and better health).

  • Walk or bike to work. This saves on gas and parking costs while improving your cardiovascular health and reducing your risk of obesity.
  • Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer. Even if this means paying more rent, it could save you money in the long term.
  • Lobby your local government to increase spending on sidewalks and bike lanes. With little cost, these improvements can pay huge dividends in bettering your health and reducing traffic.

4. Eat smart

  • If you eat meat, add one meatless meal a week. Meat costs a lot at the store-and it’s even more expensive when you consider the related environmental and health costs.
  • Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy.
  • Watch videos about why local food and sustainable seafood are great.
  • Whatever your diet, eat low on the food chain.

5. Skip the bottled water

  • Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but it generates large amounts of container waste.
  • Bring a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when travelling or at work.
  • Check out short article for the latest on bottled water trends.

6. Think before you buy

  • Go online to find new gently used secondhand products. Whether you’ve just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like craiglist or freesharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free.
  • Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items.

7. Borrow instead of buying

  • Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books.

8. Buy smart

  • Buy in bulk. Purchasing food from bulk bins can save money and packaging.
  • Wear clothes that don’t need to be dry-cleaned. This saves money and cut down on toxic chemicals use.
  • Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products. You might pay more now, but you’ll be happy when you don’t have to replace items as frequently (and this means less waste).

9. Keep electronics out of the trash

  • Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible.
  • Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is growing environmental problem.
  • Recycle your cell phone.
  • Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event.

10. Make your own cleaning supplies

  • The big secret: you can make a very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap.
  • Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention your indoor air quality.
