We know that sustainability matters to our guests — and it’s important to us, too! Whether you’re staying in one of Blueground’s turnkey apartments for a month, a year, or longer, our homes are designed to help you maintain eco-conscious habits (and build new ones). Keep reading to see how we’re reducing our footprint and to discover some easy, practical ways you can help. Since being founded in 2013, Blueground has taken steps toward environmental sustainability. Now, we’re establishing ourselves as an eco-conscious leader in the proptech space. Check out these green practices we’re currently carrying out: We’re practicing what we preach by training BeeGees (Blueground employees) and our cleaning crews to be energy efficient. This includes switching off lights and devices when not in use and using natural light as much as possible. Energy.gov explains that “Residential LEDs, especially Energy Star-rated products, use at least 75% less energy, and last up to 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.” Blueground guests in the US are greeted at their new home with a box of sustainable essentials from Public Goods — trash bags, hand soap, coffee, and more. In Chicago, we’ve allocated over 300,000 kWh of electricity to community solar energy. Plus, we’ve sourced 858,000 kWh of electricity from renewable energy sources in Boston. This ensures that our teams aren’t driving back and forth across the city burning unnecessary emissions.
