3 sustainability tips for any moving experience [Video]
October 21, 2016 / Tips and tricks
These days, people are more aware of their personal impact on the environment than ever before. That's why millions of Americans are interested in sustainability - living an environmentally conscious life. But sustainability isn't just about what we eat or wear; it can even be a part of the moving process.
Rather than cardboard boxes, opt for reusable moving crates, which are available at retailers nationwide. They're better for the environment and last for years.
During your pre-move-in cleaning session, take the time to swap out old light bulbs for compact fluorescent light bulbs; they're not only environmentally sound but often more cost efficient.
Before driving to your new home, plan out the most eco-friendly route possible. This will save time as you reduce your gas consumption and output of pollutants.
When moving, you also need a service that's dedicated to environmental conservation. Since the company's inception, Atlas Van Lines has continually sought to plan moves that benefit both customers and the environment. Plus, local Atlas agents can often supply those reusable moving crates.
