					Blue Asset Management Going Green

Charles Blumenkehl of Blue Asset Management LLC says his
company has a responsibility to be eco-friendly and do their part
to contribute to a safer environment.

Wayne, NJ, April 27, 2011 - As owners and operators of rental
properties throughout northern New Jersey, Charles Blumenkehl of Blue
Asset Management LLC feels his company has a responsibility to be
eco-friendly and do their part to contribute to a safer environment.

Blumenkehl has identified a number of ways to "go green" in his
buildings. Said Blumenkehl, "With more attention focused on protecting
our environment and saving our natural resources, we have found
numerous ways to assist in this effort by making our buildings more eco-
friendly, These initiatives range from simple things like increasing our
periodic inspections and encouraging our tenants to report water leaks,
however small that may seem, running toilets, unplugging electric
devices that aren’t in use, and switching to green energy sources where
practicable. We have also been using water-saving devices and adding
features to existing systems to help cut down on the amount of water
and energy our buildings will need to use without cutting back on
amenities, installing window treatments where possible to cut back on
the need for air conditioning in the summers and using roof coatings
that help save on heat and electric use. We are using chemical-free
paints, adhesives and other maintenance-related products that are no
more expensive than their competitors. As property managers desiring to
'green' our space, we have identified plenty of low-cost ways for our
buildings to be friendlier to our environment."

Blumenkehl added that by encouraging his tenants to save on resources
as well, they will also cut on their own electric and heating bills
benefiting themselves as well as the eco-environment. "Our tenants can
go green by unplugging appliances and using chemical-free products.
They can help us to identify leaky faucets quicker, and install their own
window treatments to conserve heat in the winter and to keep their units
cool in the summer without cranking up their air conditioning," said
Blumenkehl. "We also encourage our tenants to recycle, and are
installing recycling containers in buildings where it makes sense.

"There’s a myth that there isn’t a lot that renters can do, and that the
onus of eco-friendly initiatives fall solely on the landlord," concluded
Blumenkehl. "But, our individual behavior as well as those efforts made
by property owners like ourselves will have a huge impact on sustaining
our environment. Our residents have a lot of opportunity to make a big
difference themselves, and will also benefit by having lower utility bills to
pay."

Charles Blumenkehl has owned and operating rental real estate in New
Jersey since 1977. He founded Blue Asset Management LLC to leverage
