Tips To Help Minimize Waste When Moving Often, many wastes are generated when someone is moving-from plastics, woods, papers, paperboards, and textiles. Just imagine the number of people who move each year. Check out the statistics and you will see that they are plenty; hence, wastes are continually being increased too. So if you are moving, this is the time for you to make a difference.   There are numerous ways you can do to help lessen the amount of wastes in your community, especially when you move. The following are only some of the ways you can follow:   ·      Do not buy new boxes anymore. Start to collect boxes from the time you know you will move. You can also go to local shops to see if they have leftover boxes as well as visit your newly moved neighbors, if there are any. ·      Use your own duffel bags or suitcases when packing your clothes and other items. ·      If you are hiring movers, check out if they also offer reusable storage crates for rent. ·      Use environmentally-friendly packing materials such as bubble wraps and cushioning peanuts. ·      Use newspapers or used papers to wrap fragile items.   There are actually several things you can do to lessen the amount of wastes. Keep in mind that by aiming to help lessen the wastes in your community, you are also contributing a significant help to the world as a whole.
