Make Your Next Move an Eco-Friendly Moving Experience
The Tulsa movers at All My Sons are going to give you some tips for making your next move an eco-friendly moving experience.
Moving is the perfect time to de-clutter. All of those clothes you never wear, books you don’t read and everything else you don’t like anymore- get rid of it. However, you shouldn’t just throw it all away. Try donating these items to the local charities or churches.
When you are going through everything, you should recycle as much as you can. Recyclable materials involve much more than just plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. Batteries contain toxic substances, which can leak into nearby waterways, so take them to a local library or post office. These locations usually have a recycling center for batteries. Your old electronics and cords can also be recycled at a local resource recovery center. If you want, you can take them to a Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity to be donated.
At a slightly higher cost, you can upgrade from card board boxes as part of your packing products to keep your move eco-friendly. Plastic bins and storage boxes are better for the environment. They also make for great storage containers after you move, so it might not be such a bad idea to invest in a couple of these anyway!
According to our Tulsa movers, you can also make your cleaning process green. You can use vinegar, baking soda and ammonia as low-impact replacements for a number of household cleaning products that may contain harmful chemicals. Your new home will be cleaned in the most eco-friendly way!
