Moving from a Beacon Hill apartment to a Boston condo always seems to come with some stress. To avoid the stress, you need to make an inventory, plan weeks ahead of the move, and pack all your belongings, transfer utilities, and a lot more. With all these things on your plate, do you think it is important to worry about the environment? With the rise in global warming and an increase in climate change every little contribution to the environment is significant. So, yes you should definitely be concerned about the environment while moving to a new Boston condo for sale.
If everything is tied in a big black plastic bag to be thrown away, it is definitely not doing the environment any good. So, here’s what you can do. While you are separating the essentials from the non-essentials to make your move easy, collect all the items and see if you can donate them.
There are several companies out there who care about your move and believe in protecting the environment. Don’t think that movers will not go green. We can provide a list of Boston movers who service more than downtown Boston, and many other movers drive low-emission trucks, use cardboard boxes that have been recycled and LED cargo areas to bring down energy bills.
One cleaning tip in cleaning a Beacon Hill condo that you could clean grime, dirt and the most stubborn stains with vinegar. At that point in time, it didn’t occur to me that vinegar is also a natural cleaning agent. So, make your new home shine with the help of natural cleaning products like vinegar, lemon, and baking soda. After all, chemical kitchen cleaners or all-purpose cleaners exude gases that are not good for the respiratory organs.
Packing involves cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, plastic containers, tape, wrapping paper, etc. Bubble wrap, tape, and plastic containers are not easily recyclable. But you have to use them to keep your belongings safe. So how will you protect the environment? It is simple. Make sure that you use a mix of cardboard boxes and reusable plastic containers. This way you will use specific material that can be recycled easily and return the plastic containers for reuse. This produces win-win situation for both the environment and your pocket.
Being environmentally friendly does not end up at the doorstep of your new house. You have to be considerate about the environment after the move too. So, here’s what you can do. Unpack all the boxes and don’t throw them away even if they are a little crumpled. You can use the same boxes the next time you move. Second, take help from the professionals or self access your home to make your new house energy-efficient. Third, use VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint if you wish to change the look of your new house. Fourth and last, ensure that you give all the packing supplies for recycling if you don’t intend to use them in the future.
