Why We Care about Green Practices

Make Yourself Green is a streamlined and no cost program for supporting the adoption of sustainability practices. It focuses on four key areas that have the most impact for self storage operations.

  • Energy Usage
  • Water Usage
  • Recycling and Paper Usage
  • Cleaning and Disposal

The world population is rapidly expanding, but the planet has a fixed amount of natural resources. Reducing our footprint through green practices helps preserve water, fuel, air and a good standard of living for our children, grandchildren and future generations. Conservation, re-use and re-cycling save resources and make for a healthier world. It's easy, and it's the right thing to do.
