Boulevard is proud to have partnered with, and support several local organizations whose missions align in doing better for the planet and we have outlined them below.
We run on solar panels and 100% renewable energy, use non-toxic cleaning products, have energy efficient lighting, use 100% recycled paper products and sustainable packaging and don’t use single-use plastics. We believe that tackling climate change begins at the individual level and that we should each be responsible for how we care for our planet. We should all be committed to helping our planet thrive and pushing for a sustainable future for generations to come. Boulevard is committed to doing our part in helping our planet survive and thrive by assisting our clients in creating their healthy and eco-friendly homes. From the small (free) changes you can do around the house, to installing solar for energy independence, we have done the research and know from first hand experience what works, and we want to share it all with you.

Always remember to refuse new ‘fast’ furniture or appliances, reduce your water, energy and plastic consumption, reuse and repurpose what you already have, recycle what can be recycled and put all your organic waste back into the soil.
Climate change can only be tackled when we work together, but the first step is at the individual level. Here’s a list of small and easy changes you can make in your daily life that will help reduce your carbon footprint.
Do you have solar on your roof and backup battery?
Are you purchasing 100% renewable energy?
Do you drive an electric car?
How do you heat your house?
What type of lightbulbs do you have in your home?
What type of water tank do you have have?
Do you compost?
Do you unplug your appliances when you are not using them?
Do you say no to single-use plastic?
Do you reuse your glass jars/containers for food storage?
Are your appliances energy star rated?
Do you turn off your lights when you leave the room?
What type of cleaning products do you use?
Do you use your own grocery bags?
If not, don’t worry. We’ve got all the ways to make the above answers a ‘yes’ below!
