2011 CHR's Resident Live Green Events

We've been asking more and more from our residents to help create green awareness and they have risen to the challenge every time! 2011 was our best year yet!

May, 2011 —Green Monster Social, Waterfall Hills Apartments, Canton, MA
We asked buildings to compete against each other to see who could reduce their water usage the most. Green gift bags and reusable shopping bags were given out to many active residents, but only one resident got the coveted Kindle as a grand prize.

September, 2011 —Water Usage Reduction, Kilsyth Manor Apartments, Brighton, MA
To give residents an idea of how much water can be wasted in the shower, we distributed show timers to every apartment. Of the homes that reduced their usage, one lucky winner washed their cares away with a new Kindle.

November, 2011 —Plastic Bag Recycling, Ridgecrest Village Apartments, West Roxbury, MA
The first 20 people who dropped off their plastic shopping bags for recycling got a reusable bag and a CFL light bulb. Everyone who participate was entered into a raffle for more prizes.

November, 2011 —Big Brother/ Big Sister Clothing Drive, Bay View Estates Apartments, Portsmouth, RI
Resident were asked to "clear their clutter"! Bags and bags of unwanted clothes were put to good reuse and green gift bags were raffled away.

December, 2011 —Coats for Kids Drive, Hancock Village Apartments, Chestnut Hill, MA
Right in time for the cold weather, residents donated their unwanted coats which were put to good resuse. One lucky resident won a green gift bag for a prize.
