America Recycle Day
Living Smart Today for a Brighter Tomorrow
November 15 is America Recycles Day, a day not only meant to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling, but to spread the word on the importance of purchasing recycled products, too. So, today, millions of conscientious citizens across the country will take part in #AmericaRecyclesDay to make the earth a cleaner, more sustainable place to live.
TRI Pointe Homes plans to take part – today and every day, all year long. We do it with our community-wide “Think Outside the Box” program that helps our new homeowners reuse and recycle by sharing gently-used moving boxes at recycle stations for the next family moving into a new TRI Pointe Homes residence.
And our LivingSmart® model is one of the most pioneering of its kind, allowing residents to save in cost, energy and precious resources for a healthier, happier home.
This looks like energy-efficient appliances, motion-detector lighting, dimmer switches and the use of LED lighting to minimize the drain of electricity in a home.
It is also the use of solar panels to keep energy costs down, heat-resistant roof shingles and weather-stripping to save on heating and cooling costs. It also includes building our homes from the ground up with recyclable materials and engineered wood products that resist warpring, splitting and shrinking while preserving our beautiful forests.
And our homes feature built-in recycle bins to make it easier than ever for families to recycle and save money, resources and this beautiful planet we all call home.
