January 2021 has been great so far here at L and O North Hollywood apartments for rent! Why is that exactly? To start, our community here is growing, and this year we are really prioritizing our well being. So much so that this year on the blog, every month, you will get a recurrent health and wellness post to keep you inspired and happy while living at our North Hollywood Arts District apartments for rent. First up on our series is a deep dive into eco-friendly living.
Eco-friendly living: Products
A great place to start within your luxury apartments in North Hollywood would be investing in eco-friendly tech. That includes energy-efficient light bulbs. Even when you invest in energy-efficient bulbs, it’s essential to turn lights off and only keep them on when necessary. Thankfully our units come with ample lighting, giving you all the natural light you need. You may even find yourselves turning on the light switch only once the sunsets. Moving onto the kitchen, we suggest investing in products like an indoor food compost bin. Check out this top 10 list from the NY Times for some great compost bins.
When it comes to your in-unit washer and dryer, try washing laundry in cold water instead of hot. Speaking of laundry, we love Meyer’s laundry detergent. Why you may ask? Meyer’s is biodegradable and plant-derived. Also, stop using those single dryer sheets and get yourself some wool dryer balls that will last you up to 5 years!
For those who don’t know, one of the biggest luxuries of living in North Hollywood at L and O apartments is that we have an Amazon Fresh Grocery store just below us! Before you have the best grocery shopping experience of your life, shop with reusable produce bags. Organic Cotton Market has a great mixed tote set that includes grocery bags as well.
Eco-friendly living: Habits
There is no time like the present to pick up a new hobby! Let’s start in our L and O apartments for rent in Los Angeles with a balcony garden. Growing your own food, even if it’s a simple herb garden, will decrease your carbon footprint significantly.
Another one of the many gratifications of living at L+O is the accessibility to eco-friendly forms of transportation. We are within walking distance of the Metro, and our neighborhood is very bike-friendly. Keep in mind that we have a great bike kitchen on-site to store and keep your bike in tip-top shape.
We are all coffeeholics and proud of it! However, let’s make sure we consume the most essential beverage of all time with spill-proof ceramic coffee lids and metal straws. Check out this blog of ours to learn more about our favorite coffee shops in LA!
