How to Move Sustainably!
Moving can be an incredibly stressful time. Trying to organize and pack all your belongings often results in large amounts of waste. Moving sustainably is easier than you might expect.
Below are some ways to make your move more eco-friendly:
1. Use Hand Towels for Fragile Decor
Feel free to skip the plastic bubble wrap and newspaper. Utilizing towels you have around the house is like hitting two birds with one stone. Wrap your fragile items with your towels when you pack. You're double-packing and keeping your items safe.
2. Host a Garage Sale
Not only are garage sales great, but you can also make quick cash. They also help give your old items a new life with someone else. Taking the time to reduce items in your closet and around the house makes moving much easier.
3. Donate or Gift the Rest
Sometimes you can't sell everything at a garage sale, and that's okay! Donate your items to places like Goodwill, The Salvation Army, and other thrift stores.
4. Opt for Reusable Moving BoxesCardboard boxes are one of the most reliable ways to move your items. Save cardboard throughout the year from previous purchases. Then, when moving day arrives, you won't have to purchase as many new boxes.
