Here at DRF Real Estate, we want to use our business to help make the world a better place. We have made an enduring commitment to focus on the triple bottom line – including People, the Planet, as well as Profit.

We are committed to doing business in a sustainable, positive manner that is responsible, ethical, transparent, inclusive and supportive of our local environment, community, and economy.

Below you will see some examples of how we are loving building a more sustainable business.


We turn off all lights and unplug our monitors each night.


We have eliminated single-use plastics and replaced with reusable materials.

Company Fleet

We incentivize our team to drive hybrid vehicles.


We commit to reduce office waste by 10% annually. Shredded paper is donated to our local humane society for bedding.


These days all paper and recyclable plastics are recycled.


We have installed compost bins and a team member makes weekly trips to the local compost collection point.

Community Support

We serve our community as Board Members of Boulder Symphony, Niwot Business Association, Women’s International Niwot Club, Guild Member of Community Food Share.


As proud members of the PLEDGE 1% community, we support local community-based charities like food shares and the arts.


We have proudly reimagined our events to become 100% zero waste.

Recycling at the DRF Team Office

We have 3 Zero Waste boxes set up at our office so you can recycle the following:


plastic bottles, food storage and takeout containers, cereal bag liners, plastic wrap, shopping bags, bubble wrap, styrofoam peanuts, straws, air packaging, pallet covers, shrink wrap


tape dispensers, desk organizers, card and document filers, binders, calendars, labels, staplers, hole punchers, dividers, paper cutters, correction supplies, pens/ pencils/markers, fasteners, paper clips, staples, binder clips, sticker/label sheet backing


any brand and size of ink and toner cartridge from personal or commercial printers

Everything collected through the Zero Waste Box system is sorted and processed into raw materials that can be reused instead of being sent to landfill.


We believe in paying the world back as a thank you for our thriving business.
