Helping to Shape A Better Future


Any steps we take toward sustainable living can have a big impact. We’re proud to use environmentally-friendly practices, products and services at our communities, including the following:

  • Choosing environmentally-friendly cleaning supplies
  • Installing high-performance, water saving fixtures, including low-flow shower heads, toilets and faucets
  • Selecting compact fluorescent light bulbs and LED lights*
  • Utilizing low-VOC paints, carpets and adhesives
  • Choosing paper, envelopes and paper towels with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled content; by choosing this option, we saved the equivalent of over 100 trees.
  • Recycling paper, cardboard, cans, plastics and glass used in our offices, community rooms and laundry rooms whenever possible
  • Partnering with residents to reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible to reduce waste going to landfills
  • Finding ways, through our Weidner Paperwork Reduction Taskforce, to reduce the paper used in our leases and addendums by up to 60%, including the introduction of electronic lease-signing
  • Launching an online portal for residents to make payments, request maintenance service, and access bulletin boards for their communities
  • Converting to Energy Star appliances*
  • Reducing dependency on HVAC refrigerant through tracking and recycling
* Conversion in progress
