Moving is a chance to get a clean start. Why not help keep the environment clean while you’re at it? Yes, moving can be done in an environmentally responsible way. In part one of this blog series, we already discussed some really easy ways you can make your move eco-friendly. In part two, we’ll cover a few more ways to go green while you move. If you’re looking for eco-friendly moving services for your move in the Secaucus area, give the specialists at Movone Move & Store a call!
Get Creative With Your Packing Materials
Bubble wrap and packing peanuts are icons of the moving industry, but they’re not exactly eco-friendly. Rather than layering your boxes with sheets of bubble wrap or plastic wrap, why not use materials you already have in your home? You can carefully wrap delicate objects like plates and photo frames, with t-shirts and towels. If you have a box that has some leftover space in it, cram it full of socks and underwear. If you have smaller decorative boxes throughout your home, fill them with other delicate materials and then pack them inside another box.
You might have more packing solutions in your home than you realize. Put your duffle bags, suitcases, backpacks and totes to good use, and fill them with items and goods that are related to their intended purpose. That way, when you’re ready to unpack all your camping gear, it’ll already be in your backpack! When you make your items do double duty, you’ll pack two items in one go!
Look Into Green Transportation
More and more, moving companies are offering moving services that take advantage of trucks that utilize bio-diesel fuel. While it may cost you a little extra up front, it’s a long-term investment in the health of the Earth. If you’re moving a long distance, try and get all of your belongings into one moving truck. It will cut down on the number of vehicles needed to move all of your goods and items. Similarly, if you have multiple vehicles, you might consider renting a trailer and hauling one vehicle behind another. This will cut back on the amount of emissions you produce during your move.
