Sustainable Moving Tips

Purge – Consider holding a garage sale, or donating to local charities in your area.

Utilize Electronic Recycling Programs for unwanted and older electronics.

Moving companies prefer customers use new cardboard boxes to ensure stability but you can look for boxes made of recycled materials.

Re-Use or Recycle your moving boxes when you are done with them.

Cut back on plastic bubble wrap and use old newspapers (which you can later recycle) for non-fragile items, or even old sheets and linens as packing material.

Look for environmentally-friendly cleaning products when moving out.
