Celebrating Earth Month!
It’s that time of year again – Earth Month! April is a time to reflect on our impact on the planet and consider what we can all do to reduce our environmental footprint. At Hunt Street, we take sustainability seriously, and our members play a big part in how we reduce our footprint each and every day. Keep reading for a quick overview of what we do at HSS to make things better for our planet.
We’ve got a comprehensive recycling system in place that makes it super easy for you to dispose of paper, plastics, glass, and metal. Just follow the signs above each recycling area next to the kitchens, and make sure you’re tossing it in the right bin. Not sure which bins your stuff goes into? Just ask – we’re more than happy to help.
We also compost all of our food waste in partnership with Midtown Composting. From compostable coffee cups to bags made out of compostable material, we’re doing our part by reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, while also creating a sustainable source of soil.
Electric Vehicle Chargers & Solar Panels
For our eco-conscious drivers, we have electric vehicle charging stations in our parking lot. If you’re driving an electric car, feel free to charge up while you work. Our EV chargers will ~hopefully~ be fully operational in less than a month! In addition to EV chargers, we’re also planning to install solar panels on our campus to help convert sunlight into electrical energy. With a clean, renewable energy source like solar, we can help reduce our carbon emissions and reduce our building’s electric bill.
Refillable Water Stations
With 3 refillable water stations throughout HSS, we’ve helped save over 18,000 water bottles from landfills to date. Whether you cowork with us each week or are just attending a meeting, don’t forget to bring your reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
Community Clean-Up Days
Every month we host community clean-ups with our neighbors to help keep McDougall-Hunt clean. Bringing together our members, staff, and community partners, these clean-ups are a fun way to keep our neighborhoods better than we found them. Keep an eye out on our calendar for our next community clean-up!
