People are mostly concerned about man-made spaces like homes, offices, etc. They want to keep the indoors clean, healthy, and pollution-free, which is good, but they entirely forget about their absolute home—the Earth. The whole ecosystem is sick and suffering because of human’s selfish and unwise actions.

Better and brighter career prospects are one of them, but while doing so, they forget to exercise caution towards damaging the outer environment.

Here are a few tips of sustainability you can adopt to make relocation less harmful for the planet.
- Purge, Donate, Recycle – The fewer items you have to relocate, the better for the environment. So, don’t just shove everything down the road. Downsize before you move, and pare down those goods you are no longer using. List your valuable items to sell on online marketplaces. Donate gently used items to local charities. Also, give clothes, plastics, and e-trash, such as cables, batteries, wires, etc., to a local recycling service.
- Work with movers dedicated to sustainability – Partner with an eco-conscious relocation company for your move. Check their practices, such as eco-friendly packing materials, techniques, vehicle fleet, etc. You can successfully relocate to your new home without leaving your carbon footprint just by having a green moving company by your side. As far as affordability is your concern, ask for quotes from at least the top 5–6 relocation companies to compare their prices and gain leverage during negotiations to grab an attractive deal.
- Use recycled or pre-used moving supplies – It should go without saying that if you are moving on your own, consider using soft clothes, blankets, newspapers, etc., instead of plastic materials to wrap your fragile and delicate goods. Similarly, consider using second-hand packaging supplies or recyclable and durable packaging boxes, bins, and carets in order to move without troubling the environment.
- Dispose of Toxic Chemicals Carefully – Removal companies don’t move hazardous, inflammable, perishable items, etc. You need to dispose of the chemical waste carefully so that it won’t create a health hazard for anyone coming into contact with it. Usually, companies mention the disposal instructions on the label. You can follow the instructions for their swift and safe disposal.
- Make as few trips back and forth as possible – Plan your driving route in advance. The less you stop, the better it will be for the environment. By minimizing your stops and making fewer trips back and forth, you can save on fuel or gas as well as reduce the carbon footprint because, in that case, a lower amount of carbon will be released into the atmosphere. Moreover, you can store your belongings in self-storage to prevent those trips.
- Recycle the leftover packing material – When you successfully shift to your new home and unpack your goods, many empty boxes pile up. Now you have two options, either to recycle those boxes or keep them safely for future use.
Once you arrive at your new home, consider –
- Going Plastic Free, Going Green
- Installing low-energy bulbs.
