Moving to a new home is a hectic process for anyone–and unfortunately it can also be a wasteful one. Thankfully, with the right senior move managers, you can reduce the environmental impact of your move. Here are some tips from Busy Buddies:
- Be Efficient in Your Use of Vehicles – Emissions caused by vehicles are the number one enemy of the environment. You can reduce emissions during your move by consolidating your errands, making fewer trips and keeping your tires inflated to prevent wasted energy. Alternatively, you can also look for a green moving company to save energy and reduce emissions.
- Use Earth-Friendly Packing Materials – Another way senior moving experts can help reduce the environmental impact of your move is by using eco-friendly packing materials. Try to avoid buying cardboard boxes and ask your local stores for reusable ones instead. You can also pack some of your things within your furniture to avoid the need for boxes.
- Recycle – Consider donating items you no longer need to charity rather than throwing them away. If you have broken electronics, look for a computer store that runs a recycling program so they can take these items off your hands.
- Save Energy in Your New Home – Buy energy-efficient appliances and products in order to reduce your new home’s energy consumption.
