2012 CHR's Resident Live Green Events

2012 CHR's Resident Live Green Events

2012 was all about paying it forward for the planet. Each year, our green events get better and better!

June, 2012 - Electronics Recycling: Village Green Apartments in Plainville, MA
Village Green asked their residents to bring their broken or unwanted electronics to be disposed of properly. Through Mass Recycle and Best Buy, these items were stripped down to reuse their parts. A CHR Green Gift Bag was raffled off to a lucky resident.

August, 2012 - Ice Cream Social and Green Event: Waterfall Hills Apartments in Canton, MA
Three events in one! Residents brought toiletries for our troops, ate frosty treats from Ben and Jerry's, and were educated on the benefits of CFL lightbulbs. Everyone walked away with a CFL bulb while one happy resident was awarded a CHR Green Gift Bag.

August, 2012 - Ice Cream Social and Green Event: Norwest Woods Apartments in Norwood MA
Every resident who brought their old plastic shopping bags for recycling were given with a delicious frozen reward.

December, 2012 - Coats for Kids: Hancock Village Apartments in Chestnut Hill MA, CHR Brighton Apartments in Brighton MA, and Bay View Estates Apartments in Portsmouth, RI
We asked resident to donate their lightly used winter coats for the less fortunate. Collecting 61 coats, residents did a great thing for a person in need and kept it green by allowing the coats to be reused. A few residents walked away with a CHR Green Gift Bag for their generosity.
