So, you're moving. You’ve picked out your new place and you’re ready to go! You’ve picked the date the move is going to take place and you’ve hired movers. The last thing on your mind is being eco-conscious, but you want a “greener move”. We get it! But let me tell you, there are so many ways you can help out your planet without going out of your way or by spending a lot of extra money or even worse, slowing down what you already have in motion.
The first green thing you can look into are the boxes your using. Did you know that cardboard fills up over half of our landfills? Try looking into rent re-useable moving boxes like Save A Tree Moving Boxes. Companies like ours exist all over the country! And when you can get the boxes for cheaper than cardboard and get them delivered, well you are on your way to an easier more eco-friendly move already!
Another great tip: purge! Less stuff to move means less boxes and less for your movers to haul and less weight for them to carry. Often times, movers charge on weight so de-cluttering saves you money.You might even make some cash if you have a garage sell!
Lastly, look into the moving company you’ve hired. Nowadays, moving companies are going green too! They are using biodiesel fuel which is much nicer to mother nature.
