On the Amenities page, is it possible to add several checkboxes. Perhaps under a Green section?

100% renewable electric provider

Low flow showers

Recycle bin

LED bulbs throughout

I don't use them, but perhaps things like Solar Heat or Solar Water Heating might be a possible.

This is a good idea, we'll note it down for when we do our next round of amenities. We also need to add some of the new safety features lists that the channels are adding.

Gotta keep up with those Gen X-Y-Z millenials, etc.!!!

For example, PAPowerswitch.com (and other states) lets you specify your supplier, including those providing 25% or more renewable power.

No doubt. If you have green attributes to brag about, it's a great thing to do. Lot of people eyeing that these days.

On a persona note, low flow showers is anti-amenity. I do not want a trickle , I want a normal shower. LOL

The trick is to find the right showerhead. I looked at them all. Some are reviewed as easily breakable. Some as too weak, This one is solid steel and I use it on a daily basis (personally). It is very reasonable flow - little hissy sound, but not bother me. On Amazon:

High Sierra's All Metal 1.5 GPM High Efficiency Low Flow Showerhead.

I avoid anything with "low flow" in the title - faucets, shower heads, toilets, you name it. I want power in the flow, sorry if that offends. 🏋🤪
