More and more often, we hear about living sustainably, considering our carbon footprint and trying to lower our contributions to landfills. Sometimes, the idea of living green feels like a daunting task. Where do you start? How much of an impact can you really have? Nobody can change things alone, but together, we can do our part and make our Earth a better place!
What Can You Do?
A better environment is a result of active green living. That means we all have to do our portion to help out. If everyone implemented just a few green living practices each day, we would see a big impact on the environment. Here are a few very simple ways you can practice greener living in your daily life:
- Cut back on single-use items like plastic wrap, paper towels, single-use straws, disposable coffee pods and disposable water bottles.
- Recycle as much as possible. Cardboard, glass, paper and most plastic can be recycled. Check your waste to see if it can be recycled before putting it into the trash.
- Compost your food to reduce food waste.
- Donated gently used clothing, household items, electronics and toys.
- Buy household items and foods in bulk using reusable containers.
- Pick up litter and dispose of it properly if it cannot be recycled.
- Volunteer in your community to help with things like planting trees and picking up litter.
What is South Pointe Doing?
At South Pointe Apartments and Homes, we’ve implemented some practices to help our community be a little more environmentally friendly. These practices, in combination with our residents and staff doing their part, can make an impact on our local environment. Some of these green living practices include:
- Green pest control for reducing harmful insects from the property
- Planting of native trees in conjunction with green landscaping throughout the property. This includes trees such as palmettos, cypress trees, wax myrtles and oak trees.
- The usage of low volatile organic compound (VOC) paint to reduce toxins in the air.
- Usage of as many green household supplies as possible throughout the community.

What Our Residents Have To Say
My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!
I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.
Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.
I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.
I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
