Green Renters

Norwood has a high number of rental properties, and this means that a fair number of Norwood residents are not homeowners.

If you rent your home, you may be restricted in the ways you can live sustainably. Most landlords will not permit alterations of building and appliances by tenants (even in the name of energy efficiency). And adequate recycling from home may not be an option (though by law, it is required). Storage space may be an issue, as may gardening your own vegetables.

If you’d like to explore renters’ going green, or share ideas, concerns, and information, let us know. We’ll put you in touch with other renters who are looking for some solutions. There are probably ways to make your home more sustainable; they just need to be found.

If you’re not interested in being part of a group, contact us anyway; the community needs to hear from you.
