Five Ways to Make your Move Green - Eco-Friendly Moving Tips

If you are undergoing a remove then you will know of all the work involved. You will need to plan the process carefully with a moving checklist. You will need to obtain the right removal services and materials, pack your goods, see to furniture removals, hire a moving van and much more. An important aspect of removals you cannot ignore is doing this environmentally friendly. Everything we do can have an impact on the environment, and your home removals are no exception. If you want to see how your move can remain green, then read on for five moving tips.

    The first tip is to get rid of old items before the move. Get rid of goods you don't need or use by recycling them, through local recycling services, bins or contacting the local recycling depot. You can also sell some goods to make some extra money for the relocation, or donate them, with charity stores always happy to take goods they can sell. This helps your move by reducing the amount of materials you have to pack and transport, and will also make more room in your new abode.

It helps the environment because you are taking unwanted items and giving them a chance to be reused or turned into something new.

    The next tip is to use the suitable eco-friendly packing material. You should avoid anything made of plastic as this won't biodegrade easy, and is not simple to recycle. Instead, aim for items made of cloth, paper and cardboard to protect your goods because these not only biodegrade effortlessly, but also are much simpler to recycle. Thing such as tissue paper, sheets and cardboard boxes can be found in a wide range of home stores and online, so you can find what you necessitate for your move and the help the environment at the same time.

    Saving the planet can also means saving money, as you will see in this tip. Rather than buying the packaging material you need, you should instead look for suitable items you already own. Around your house you will likely have old clothes and sheets, newspaper and random boxes that can be used for the relocation. Ask friends, family, co-workers, etc if they have similar materials and ask if you can take them. Local stores may provide you with used and unwanted boxes for free if you ask. Dong this gives you all that you require to enfold and box your items, while saving you money.

By reusing old items rather than buying new goods, you have having a positive impact on the planet.

    The fourth tip is to recycle after the move. When you have finished unpacking all of your goods, you will be left with countless pieces of paper, cardboard, wrappings and more. Rather than throwing all of this away, you should look into local recycling bins and services. See if you can leave your goods to be picked up, and if there is nothing available find out where your nearest recycling centre is and speak with them. You could also consider hanging onto to boxes and wrapping and reusing them for something else later.

    The last tip for green removals is to use a single removal van. Rather than using multiple cars or smaller vehicles over several journeys, obtain a proper moving vehicle. This will be able to transfer all of your goods quickly to you address in one trip. Doing it this way can speed up the move, make it simpler and it ensures the least amount of emissions are released.
