2011 Earth Day Clean Up

  1. 1. PRIZES!
  2. Who doesn’t love to be rewarded once in a while? We are always raffling off our green gift bags complete with Brita water pitchers and plenty of other environmentally friendly goodies. Some of our other prizes include gift cards to Whole Foods, resident pizza parties, or even $100 off a month’s rent!


  1. 2. Your efforts are already paying off!
  2. In 2008, our Brighton residents were responsible for reducing their water usage by 15% during our Water Conservation contest. Over at our sites in Canton and West Roxbury, recycling efforts were doubled during our Recycling contests.


  1. 3. Save Money on Your Electricity Bill!
  2. Put some cash back in your wallet by participating in our Electricity Challenges. A simple change such as replacing your most frequently used incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs can lower your bill by about 30%!


  1. 4. Get Rid of That Clutter!
  2. Still have that stack of books that are just taking up space in your apartment? Bring them to your property’s Swap Meet. Not only are you freeing up some space, but you are reducing your carbon footprint by recycling your donation. Who knows – you may even find something to bring home as well!


  1. 5. Feel Good About Doing Your Part!
  2. There are a lot more rewards than just prizes. Participating in these contests benefits the environment, your health, and your community. It is also a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, get involved and have fun.
