Q: I work in an apartment complex and would like to do a full week of events in the complex for Earth Day. For example, one day will be Report a Leak Day (you'd think people would just do it, but they don't); another day will be a day for residents to turn in old bulbs for energy-efficient ones; another day we'll ask residents to turn in old plastic shopping bags and get a free company tote bag instead. Trouble is, I have a low budget and the maintenance team is spread thin already. How else can we ask our residents to be energy efficient without over-burdening the staff or blowing our budget?
