As we all move toward a greener, more eco-friendly world, there are tangible ways you can help. Being ‘green’ is much more than eating your veggies and planting trees. On moving day, there are items you may use that you can either leave out or replace. Lucky for you, Motivated Movers has a green thumb! Check out these tips to make your move a little greener.
Sell, Give, Throw
Start with the things you don’t need. Throw them out! Old clothes and dishes, paper and boxes, even forgotten toys and broken jewelry can be done away with so that you are not taking trash into your new home.
Especially if you are looking to downsize or if you are moving into an apartment, it will be really beneficial to get rid of some stuff. The more you toss, the less clutter your new home will have. If you have items of value, you may even be able to get some cash for them.
Check out these tips to a successful yard sale before your move. Anything of value that doesn’t sell, you can donate or simply throw out.
Use What You Have
If you have suitcases or plastic boxes, pack up your stuff in those instead of purchasing garbage bags or boxes. You can use shoeboxes for small items like jewelry and pens, and sandwich bags for screws and small nails. For packing dishes and glasses, use newspaper instead of bubble wrap. For everything else, invest in top-quality packing supplies and materials, which are biodegradable and recyclable.
