Make Your Move Green With Help From Your Denver Movers

When you think of packing up your home, you likely think of cardboard boxes, disposable wrapping paper, and tons of bubble wrap. These products are often considered the hallmark of a successful move and work to keep your belongings safe while your trusted movers in Denver transport them. However common they may be, these single-use items only add to the landfill and pollution problems we’re already facing. Going green for your move greatly reduces the impact your relocation has on the environment. Here are a few easy ways to make your move as eco-friendly as possible.

Forget New Boxes—Find Used Ones

Instead of buying new cardboard boxes, reuse old boxes you have around the house. Try to pack your electronics in the boxes they came in whenever possible. This will reduce the number of new packing materials you need to buy while also protecting your gear as thoroughly as possible. If you don’t have old cardboard boxes lying around, stop by your local grocery store. Most stores are happy to let you have boxes after they unload the products.

Forgo the Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap is a great way to protect your belongings in transit, but all that plastic sits in the landfill after a single use. Instead, use your dishtowels, linens, and even clothing to protect fragile items. Suppose you subscribe to a local newspaper, stockpile a few weeks’ worths of papers, and crumple them to fill in space in the boxes. The paper can be recycled like normal once you’re moved and unpacked.

Leave the Basics In the Kitchen

Disposable plates and plastic utensils are convenient, but they’re harmful to the environment and take decades to decompose if they can at all. Instead of stocking up on disposable kitchenware, leave a few dishes, utensils, and cups in the kitchen after you pack up the rest of the items. This way, you’ll be able to use your dishes and wash them as often as needed, cutting down on trash and waste while you’re moving. Once you’re ready to leave for good, toss the dishes in a plastic box or reusable tote bag to bring them to the new house.

Make Fewer Trips

When you’re moving across town, it’s tempting to take small loads of items. The moving truck won’t take you multiple times a week in your car. However, each trip adds to the amount of gas your car guzzles and increases CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. Instead of making multiple tiny trips, fill your car to the brim each time. This will save you time in the long run and keep you from having to go to the pump as often.

Going green when you’re moving is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment, and nothing helps more than letting an experienced moving team haul your heavy items. Contact Eden’s Moving Services today to schedule a free moving estimate for your upcoming move. We’re here for you whether you’re moving to a different city along the Front Range or to a new home just down the block.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
