Environmentally Friendly Removals

Saving the planet is not down to some superhero who is yet to come and help us out. It is down to us. Everyone, real life people, not politicians. We must be the ones who make the difference, as otherwise no one will ever set the example that future generations will follow. You will no doubt be fairly aware of this, and will be trying to drive your car less, and use public transport and recycle everything, but there are further ways that you can ensure that you are living a greener life. Your removal may not seem like a time when you can really think about much other than getting everything packed up and shifted, but it can be a period of great waste in your life, and this will only contribute to the damage that humans do to the planet on a daily basis.

First off, think about the move and how much you throw away. What of that amount of junk that you chuck out is biodegradable? You should give some thought to how you can reduce the amount of plastics that you chuck out, by recycling. Also, how much of it is made up of things that could be donated to charity shops and re used for the good of a charity? Donating things will get rid of them just as easily, it merely takes a little effort on your part. Ensure that you are always combining trips that use a car or a van, so that you do not have to drive that often, as this will reduce the move’s carbon footprint. The packing materials used in moving house can be one of the largest waste factors involved in the move. You will no doubt be stocking up on bubble wrap and wrapping paper and boxes, which are all made using trees or plastics. These processes are harmful to the environment is not sustainably managed. Using recycled boxes is a good way to help this, and using tissue paper of old newspapers instead of bubble wrap will do a similar job whilst reducing the amount of plastic that is used in the world, as well as produced.

You will hopefully be able to use the change to implement further changes by setting up compost heaps, using your bike more and generally getting the family more interested in green endeavors. Growing vegetables and going for a walk or reading a book rather than watching TV can be just as fun as any other activity, so installing this attitude in the family is a great way to ensure that the planet is in their hearts and minds from an early age. Try to use produce form the area and set up a comprehensive recycling system as soon as you move in, so that you are always on the go with saving the planet!
