Why develop a carton conscience?
Moving house as a family, couple or single makes packaging inevitable! You don't want your belongings to turn up broken or damaged. That's where professional removalists and good packing cartons are invaluable. But not all packaging is created equal and some take the following tolls on our environment:
1. Heavy resource consumption for one-time use
2. Difficult disposal
3. Slow decomposition
4. Pollution of landscapes and waterways
5. Threat to people and animal safety
None of these scenarios are ones I want to contribute to! So I was thrilled to learn of the wide selection of eco-friendly packaging available when moving house.
Mix with the leaders of the 'pack'
There is a brave new world of biodegradable packaging including paper and cardboard cartons. These bring great benefits to both the environment and you, including:
1. Re-usable materials
2. Lighter yet stronger packaging
3. Long-term durability
4. Easy recycling and disposal
So sustainable packing is an invaluable cost-saver whenever you're moving house! You get more for your money and avoid having to buy new packing cartons next time. What's more, the environment will give you heartfelt thanks for using minimal resources. And any packaging you do dispose of will be easy for the environment to 'digest'. So opt for removalists who offer sustainable packaging - it won't cost the earth.
