We all owe a responsibility to the nature. Relocation is unfriendly towards the environment in many ways. Movers are changing the way they do their business. These days all the communication are done electronically. No brochures and proposal quotes are printed, and eco-friendly plastic moving boxes are made available to the public for packing their stuff.
If you want to leave behind the unused or less used things, you would have to make sure that they are disposed properly. You can put the extra stuff on sale or give it in charity, so that it causes no harm to the environment. Do not just throw away things that you don’t want to take with you. The sale and purchase of moving cartons made of plastic and cardboard can have a real environmental impact. Moreover, the friends that you have called to help you move to a new place are also adding to the environmental pollution by loading up their cars and trucks with your luggage.
You can really go green while packaging your stuff. Here are a few tips that can help you in executing an eco-friendly move.
1. Use your shirt or any cotton cloth to wrap around the chinaware and between the fragile dinner plates, to avoid any breakage. The cloth will be as good as a bubble wrap. You can also stuff socks in the box, in which you have packed glasses.
2. You can use blanket and bed sheets to pack your furniture pieces, to avoid any damage.
3. Borrow as much as you can. This will help in utilizing the already existing cartons, thus leaving no scope for more manufacturing of the same.
You can hire a rental company to move from one place to another, irrespective of whether you are moving internationally or locally. Asking your friends to bring down their cars and making frequent trips to your new home to transport all the stuff will affect the environment badly. Hauling is way better than performing the move DIY. In the present scenario, moving companies are also using green moving techniques.
Use green cleaners to clean your place, whether you are leaving a home or entering into a new one. These cleaners are not only good for your family’s health but also for the health of the whole globe. So use only nontoxic, biodegradable cleaners to clean your home.
Always think before buying new stuff, as it is difficult to dispose of the already existing one. Lesser buying will result in lesser disposal, thus making our planet earth green and clean.
