With the coinciding of AT:Green's launch and July's green theme across all AT city sites, we've learned about so many amazing and smart ways to live and buy differently (that is, better) this past month. We've helped launch our own building's recycling effort and have started paying more attention to seemingly small things at home (like turning off our computers overnight; often leaving them on used to be a bad habit).
Although we already had some good habits in place, we've been inspired and encouraged to develop even more habits - and a better understanding of how we may want to take our green living further in the future.
We'd love to hear if there are any changes you've made (or hope to make) in your daily life after reading the multitude of green posts on AT.
As we wind down our monthly "theme" (but not AT's overall green focus!), we turn next month to an August full of Escapes. Homes away from home. Lake cottages. Exotic visits. Weekend getaways. Extensive holidays. Great hotels. Hot spots for camping.
We'd love to flesh out this list with ideas and photos of your summer escapes...so send them in!
Email us: chicago(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com, and tell us where, when, and why your escape was significant.
