The Green Team

Preserving and improving the environment is, in every sense, a top priority for Judge Realty. Founder and broker-­in-­charge, Lori Judge, is one of Savannah’s only certified EcoBrokers and the rest of the company follows suit. In particular, two stand out as the resounding queens of green, office administrator Debbie Dennis, and new property manager and recycling guru, Collyn Ryan. Both had much to say on the topic, from the extreme to minute every day changes that add up to create a more conscious consumer and well informed inhabitant.

Debbie had a few simple and minor everyday tips, “Recycle, it’s not that tough. You can recycle almost anything now, just check. If you aren’t sure do your research, I always recycle our old electronics in the office. Never throw them away, keyboards, phones, broken monitors. We always recycle our printer toner, we go through so much and we shred all of our paper” Trips to the Chatham County Recycling Center with your items help keep our landfills clear of toxins. Not certain what you can recycle? Check this link http://recycling.chathamcounty.org/.

She also added, “Just go through your day and start eliminating the excess: I never use plastic bags for my lunch, I use a metal lunch tin. I use cloth towels at home instead of paper, switched all of my washing machines (dish and clothing) to the eco settings, it all adds up. I have eliminated harsh, toxic home cleaning products and replaced them with white vinegar and baking soda as my primary home cleansers. Even something as simple as replacing plastic toothbrushes and plastic straws with bamboo alternatives is an effective step. Visit http://woobamboo.com/ for inspiration, I also love http://www.trashisfortossers.com/.

Collyn, the true guru, offered a full overhaul of products and practices, “PLEASE, do your research. I had no idea what was in the products I was using every day until I decided to find healthier alternatives.” She recommended visiting the Environment Working Group at www.ewg.com for a complete ingredient by ingredient breakdown of every product you could ever use.

“I didn’t realize how many carcinogens and other nasty things are in everything we use. Laundry detergent and shampoos are the worst, and when you really break it down, we’re washing our clothes and bodies with it every day which means we’re literally covering ourselves with toxins and then filtering it through the water as well.” Collyn suggested trying Molly’s Suds as an alternative detergent. She also said, “Don’t forget about your pets, the same toxins in our body washes and shampoos are in theirs as well.”

She also said, “And makeup! Aside from not using animal tested products, I check to see what’s actually in what I put on my face every day. I started using Everyday Minerals, it’s comparable to Bare Minerals: they only use natural ingredients like coconut oil and murumuru butter. After you make the switch you can immediately feel the difference.”

Both ladies also said they have as many houseplants as possible to filter the air, turn off lights when they leave the room, and try to live as minimally as they can. “It’s really not that big of a change, it’s just a mindset shift from constant disposable consumerism to thinking about what we’re leaving for our children and grandchildren,” said Debbie.
