3. Wrap your belongings wisely

If you have a whole stack of newspapers and magazines, put them to good use and wrap non-fragile items before putting them in boxes. Then, you can help protect fragile things like furniture or artwork with towels or blankets. Socks, T-shirts, soft toys make for good gap-fillers. At BOXit&move we also offer a green alternative to the classical bubble wrap, namely a recyclable and antistatic bubble wrap, ideal for protection during transportation.

4. Optimize, optimize, optimize

Moving house implies a lot of resources, most of them can take a toll on the environment. One of them involves the vehicles being used to transport your belongings. That is why you need to make sure you optimize how you pack your things so that there are as few transports as possible to reduce carbon pollution. BOXit&move green boxes are spacious and can be easily stacked to optimize the space in the car used for moving, so you need a smaller number of transports and also save time and money.

5. Make cleaning eco-friendly

Moving always means a lot of cleaning, both the place you are leaving and the one you are moving to. So why not lower your impact on the environment by using eco-friendly cleaning products? They get the job done just as well, but won't cause rashes and are also pet-friendly. You can also recycle old clothes and turn them into useful rags. At BOXit&move we also clean and disinfect every box with products that are safe for the environment.
