We're converting our lighting to LEDs, and hope you will too! LED lights use less energy, last longer and shine better quality light.

Heating and cooling is a BIG use of energy. Adjusting our building temps seasonally saves energy and reduces out-to-indoor body shock. Good for people and planet!

Using less means you're doing more.

We hope to ignite your passion for a sustainable lifestyle that includes air-drying laundry, switching off power strips (slay energy vampires!) and closing windows to keep heating and cooling indoors. Also, depending on your living situation, consider sharing appliances (rather than everyone having their own) so there are fewer things always plugged in.
