Try these tips when you want to celebrate Earth Day in your apartment home!

As Earth Day approaches on April 22nd, there’s no better time to reflect on our impact on the planet and find ways to live more sustainably, even when living in an apartment community. At the Apartments of Wildewood, we believe that every small action can make a big difference. Celebrate Earth Day and appreciate the environment around you with these simple tips for embracing a sustainable, environmentally-friendly lifestyle. 

Add Green to Your Balcony with Potted Plants

Transform your balcony into a green oasis by adding potted plants. Not only do plants enhance the aesthetics of your space, but they also help purify the air and create a healthier environment. Choose native plants or herbs that thrive in your region, and enjoy the calming effect of nature right outside your door. Consider starting with these common and relatively easy plants for your balcony garden: 

  • Snake plant
  • ZZ plant
  • Basil
  • Rosemary 
  • Petunias 
  • Pansies

The colors, scents, and beauty of these plants will create an outdoor oasis that makes your home that much more appealing. 

Create a Recycling Station

Set up a designated recycling bin in your apartment home to make recycling effortless. Separate paper, plastic, glass, and metal items, and be sure to dispose of them properly. Recycling helps conserve resources and reduces the substantial amount of waste sent to landfills, making it a simple yet impactful way to care for the planet.

Cook Locally-Sourced Vegetarian Meals

Embrace sustainability in your kitchen by preparing meals with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Opting for vegetarian or plant-based meals reduces your carbon footprint and supports local farmers and producers. If you have been growing your own veggies, you may even use some of those in your dishes! Get creative with recipes using fresh produce from nearby markets in St. Mary’s County, and savor the flavors of Earth-friendly dining.

Enjoy Outdoor Picnic and Seating Areas

Take advantage of our community’s outdoor picnic and seating areas to connect with nature and appreciate the natural environment. Whether you’re enjoying a meal alfresco or simply unwinding with a book, spending time outdoors fosters a deeper appreciation for the beauty of our planet.

By incorporating these eco-friendly practices into your apartment lifestyle, you can positively impact the planet while enjoying the comfort and convenience of your home. It’s easy to celebrate Earth Day not just on April 22nd but every day by embracing the pleasures of nature and sustainable living practices.
