London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2016 -- In many ways moving house can be detrimental to the environment, from excessive transport energy being consumed to unwanted household items ending up in landfill, the planet is often bombarded with stress – and what's even worse, is that much of this stress is avoidable! Thankfully however, more and more people are starting to realise the importance of eco-friendly house moves, with Eco Friend recently revealing some top tips for all to consider when looking to move with minimal environmental impact.
Some of the tips included in the article included the following:
"Prepare and repurpose your packing materials." – One of the most damaging parts of moving is in many cases the packaging used. Packaging, not only that used for moving house, but packaging in its entirety makes up an estimated 17% of our carbon footprint – with millions of trees being chopped down to make cardboard each year. Because of this it is advised to try and source recycled boxes where possible and to keep these boxes so that they can be used again also in the future.
"Declutter in advance." - Decluttering homes prior to moving allows for people to move using less journeys and also lessens the chances of unwanted items ending up in landfill. When moving people should go through their belongings and decide what they can do with each unwanted item, for example good options include charity shops, friends and relatives, eBay and carboot sales.
A spokesperson from moving house London company Top Removals was keen to comment saying, "We are really happy that people are starting to consider the environment more when moving houses as this is something in which we are all incredibly passionate about. Employing our services when moving house can also benefit the environment, as our large vehicles allow for peoples possession to be moved in far fewer loads."
