A Renter's Guide To Eco-Friendly Living

Los Angeles Times

How much can you do to protect the environment if you live in an apartment? Plenty, says Tiffany Hsu, whose recent Los Angeles Times article (and accompanying video) offers a range of low-cost ways to make a difference…

In "A renter's guide to eco-friendly living," Hsu explores several areas in which renters can green their spaces, including recycling (swap just one roll of traditional toilet paper for recycled and you could help save 424,000 trees), water (water houseplants with bath- or dishwater), and electricity (ask if your utility company offers a green energy program or free energy audit). There are even ideas for greening your landlord.
