Like many soon to be graduates I’m facing a number of daunting tasks between now and May. In addition to finishing classes, I need to find a job – which will ultimately result in me relocating. It seems hard to be eco friendly when worrying about the 10-million things you have to do before your move, but companies like Earth Friendly Moving make it easy.
So where to start? Most people don’t take every last belonging with them, but what do you do with the excess? In May and June the dumpsters in college towns are overflowing with personal effects abandoned by students. Consider all the things you could do instead with the stuff you don’t want anymore – donations, yard sales, freecycling – a little bit of time for a serious reduction in the amount of stuff being trucked to landfills.
How about the stuff you’re taking? By packing your belongings in reusable crates, not only are you supporting recycling, you’re helping to keep tons of cardboard and other packing materials from reaching local dumps. Think about the average mover – wrapping stuff in bubble wrap, packing peanuts and cardboard boxes, you make your move and then what? You’re exhausted so you throw away all those packing materials.
Earth Friendly Moving not only delivers reusable crates, it picks them up when you’re done. A service that’s not only greener, it’s cheaper and less time consuming, especially if you can pair it with eco-friendly biodiesel based moving. So if you’re one of the 20% of Americans who moves every year, consider making it a green move, the environment and your wallet will thank you.
