5 Considerations of a Green Office Move in Sutton

  • by

In recent years, many companies and offices have made the decision to proactively reduce their impact on the environment through the use of eco-friendly alternatives. Not only can this be implemented in the way that your workplace operates, but also in the removals procedure, where green solutions can drastically cut down on the amount waste produced.

Careful consideration must be made to how the process is carried out so that you can transform your move into a green move. If you’re planning to make a greener choice to office relocation there are five simple steps to make sure you organize the process and complete the task responsibly.

Recycled packing materials for packaging

The materials you use to pack can play an important role in determining how green the office relocation you are planning is. In these times of climate change you can choose from a variety of green alternatives available in terms of packing materials. These include:

Recycled boxes
Packaging materials that are compostable, low-plastic or recyclable.

Furthermore, careful planning and creative packing can minimise the amount of supplies needed which, consequently, can decrease the amount of waste generated as you unpack at the other end.
