My Move created the infographic “Save Trees: Recycle Your Moving Boxes as a way to show people and families who are moving to a new home how they can minimize their carbon footprint by recycling, reusing or donated their moving boxes. It takes a lot of natural resources to make a move successful. While you may not be able to afford the most fuel efficient moving truck, you can still make a huge impact just by putting your moving boxes into the recycle bin and not instead of the trash.
We examined all of the resources that go into each and every moving box including how many trees, gallons of water, kilowatts of energy and gallons of gas. The average person moves 11 times or more over the course of their lives. Think about how many trees you could save just by recycling your cardboard moving boxes instead of sending them to a landfill.
My Move is a resource for individuals and families to find tips, guides and deals that will take the stress out of the moving process. Visit My Move today to learn more.
