How to be sustainable in your shared flat and be the envy of all your pals.
Besides fretting about that upcoming university exam, you also care about our beloved planet. Kudos! Studying in Barcelona and living in shared flats is the perfect combo to implement those sustainable habits you always rave about. At Vanguard Student Housing, we don't just offer you a space to rent a room, but also a flat that's already equipped and designed to be eco-friendly. Get ready for the sustainable journey of your life! **1. Recycle in style in your shared apartment.** Though our student apartments come fully equipped with everything you need, it's always good to remember the three R's rule. Set up cool and fun recycling stations in the flat. And if your flatmate forgets to recycle, start a friendly competition to see who recycles the most! **2. Responsible consumption: shop local!** Take advantage of Barcelona's rich local markets. Buying local food and products not only supports the local economy but also reduces the carbon footprint by cutting down on long-distance transportation. Plus, nothing beats a fresh tomato from the region for your salad! **3. Showers with a beat!** Create a playlist, say, 5 minutes long for your showers. When the music stops, it's time to hop out! It's a fun way to save water and kickstart your day with some energy. **4. Group cooking and the magic of batch cooking.** Preparing meals in bulk and freezing them will not only save you time during the week but also reduce food waste. And let's be honest, who can resist a cooking evening with the flat buddies? **5. Green mobility.** Barcelona is perfect for biking or walking. So, ditch the car and explore the city in a more sustainable way. Who knows? You might discover spots you've never seen before. **The eco-friendly mantra** Our student flats are designed with the environment in mind. From energy-efficient appliances to water-saving systems, everything is geared towards minimizing your ecological footprint. Living in a shared apartment in Barcelona is a one-of-a-kind experience, and doing it sustainably makes it even better. At Vanguard Student Housing, we've got your back on every step of your green journey. So, gear up to practice those green habits and enjoy university life with awareness!
