Moving Overseas – Greener
How Can I Do My Part to Make a Green Move?
Many clients wonder what they can do to make a green move overseas, but often think it is more complicated or difficult than it really is. If you want to make a green move overseas, all you have to do is attack this problem with an eco-friendly or earth-conscious state of mind—then it’s simple!
Simply start by trying to cut back. Excess is one of the greatest ways in which we waste. The less you have to move, the less fuel and man power it will take to relocate it. Also, be sure to pack carefully to reduce the number of boxes you have to pack and move overseas.
Use Recycled Boxes
Use already-used boxes or boxes made of recycled materials to pack your things in. Try using an online classified site to look for someone who has recently moved and has boxes in good shape.
Get Rid of Clutter
Try having a garage sale or donating excess stuff you won’t be bringing along to get rid of the clutter!
Newspaper, Not Bubblewrap
Don’t go crazy with the bubble wrap when packing your fragile items. Instead of using layer after layer of bubble wrap on everything, try using newspapers instead! Remember to recycle the newspaper after you unpack.
Try using eco-friendly cleaning supplies when cleaning out your old home and before moving into the new one. If you plan to use a cleaning service, trying using one that practices green cleaning methods.
Green International Relocation
When looking for an international relocation company, search for one like NY International Shipping that makes an effort to go green whenever and wherever possible. Although it may be difficult to go green as an international relocation company, it is not impossible! It simply takes research, innovation and dedication to preserving our environment and creating less waste!
Every little bit helps, so do your part while you move overseas!
