It's summertime! The weather has been great here in So Cal (as usual) this month and we hope you've been able to spend some time outdoors. As the weather heats up, many of us have the AC on. However, with conservation on the mind, many of us are also not turning it on as much and using fans and other ways to stay cool and save energy usage. Are you doing anything different this year than last year to beat the heat? We all know that trying to live more green is no longer a choice, but a lifestyle change that is necessary for our future. TODAY! we launch our newest site AT:Green Home, which will be a dedicated space to learn and share tips, products, and ideas about living green. We have two new editors at the helm AT:Green Home, Stephanie Kinnear and Jonathan Bean. They will be bloggin fresh content, and the site will also act as a filter for all green-themed posts from all the AT sites. Here's an example from the site, going back to alternative ways to beat the heat. Share with us what things you're doing this summer to live more green, or changes you've made to your overall lifestyle. AT:LA is all about our community so we need your inspiration! Send us your pics, tips, or ideas to la (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.
