Moving can be a messy process that leaves plenty of waste behind, but using these green moving tips you can make your transition more eco-friendly.
- Cut out the cardboard. Rather than tree-killing cardboard, you can use recycled plastic bins for boxes. Not only are these bins the product of recycling, they are also reusable.
- Use biodegradable protection. Plastic sheets, bubble wrap, and Styrofoam peanuts were once necessary environmental evils to protect your things, but now you can get bioplastic packing peanuts and recycled paper: 100% green.
- Use what you already have. Your clothes, towels, pillows, and bedding can be used to provide protective padding, cover more fragile items and help you avoid wasteful packing materials.
- Reduce your number of belongings. The larger and heavier your shipment is, the more fuel and resources it will take to move it. Before you pack everything up, you can go through it to get rid of the excess. Garage sales and donation are great ways to get rid of things the green way.
