Cut your household waste
Homes and offices have limited safe, and in the efforts of living a clutter-free life, many of us are always looking to cut down on the amount of things we have in our homes. This can lead to a lot of things ending up in landfills that can have a damaging effect on the environment. Instead of throwing away the things you no longer have space for, you could put them in self-storage instead. Self-storage can help you find a place for your things ready to be used at a later date, or sold/donated when convenient. You’ll not only free up some space but will have storage ready for whenever you need it too.
Reduce your carbon footprint
The bigger the house, the more likely you are to fill it. And bigger properties can use a lot of energy to keep them running, with additional heating and lighting increasing your home’s carbon footprint. Instead, use self-storage to store your additional items – saving you money on your house costs and giving you a home that’s much more affordable to run.
Adopt eco-friendly packing methods
Another way you can enjoy sustainable self-storage is to think twice about the packaging materials you use. Recycle packaging materials as much as possible, especially you’re existing plastics. You can also use newspapers and old towels or clothing to protect your items from damage while they’re being stored. Think outside the box about what you put in the box, it can make a big difference to how much material you waste.
Waste less, save more
Having somewhere to store your belongings instead of getting rid of them will help you waste less and save more. You won’t need to keep rebuying items, and storing things away when not in use will help them last longer too. Using self-storage could save money in the long run, and give a boost to the environment too.
