Any step toward sustainable living can have a big impact. We are proud of the environmentally-friendly practices, products and services at our communities, including the following:

  • Compact fluorescent light bulbs and LED lights*
  • Installing high-performance, water saving fixtures, including low-flow shower heads, toilets and faucets
  • Low VOC paints, carpets and adhesives
  • Paper, envelopes and paper towels with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled content; by choosing this option, we saved the equivalent of over 100 trees.
  • Whenever possible, we recycle paper, cardboard, cans, plastics and glass used in our offices, community rooms and laundry rooms
  • Environmentally-friendly cleaning supplies
  • The Weidner Paperwork Reduction Taskforce has the job of finding ways to reduce the paper used in our Leases and Addendum by up to 60%, including electronic lease signing
  • Online Rent Payments (US) and Online Maintenance Requests
  • Partnering with residents to reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible and thereby reducing waste from landfills
  • Converting to Energy Star appliances*
  • Reducing dependency on HVAC refrigerant through tracking and recycling
