Homeowner associations can join Sustainability Challenge
March 29, 2011
Friends of Quadrant Homes, a social network hosted by Quadrant Homes, has launched a 90-day sustainability challenge, lasting from March 15 through June 15.
Anybody living in a homeowner association can participate. The two HOAs that make the most creative environmental changes will receive $2,000 grants.
Of the HOAs that place, one will be urban and the other suburban, which includes communities in King County.
To register, HOA residents must do the following:
- Register online.
- Make a pledge to do at least one of the items in each of the three categories.
- Create a pledge of their own.
Participants can make a difference by being conscientious of their energy, water and land use, including giving up paper cups for beverage mugs, replacing outdated showerheads with low-flow ones or planting a tree.
In addition to sustainability commitments, participants can share their photos, videos and stories on the Friends of Quadrant Homes Facebook page.
