This year Exodus Moving and Storage was awarded the Green Affiliate of the Year by the Fort Collins Board of Realtors. This award is given in recognition of outstanding corporate initiative to incorporate environmentally friendly business practices. So how did we become so good at green?
In an effort to go beyond normal ways of looking at recycling, we re-thought the process. The following are two interesting statistics about recycling boxes after your move:
- Recycled cardboard only takes 75 percent of the energy needed to make new cardboard and lessens the emission of sulfur dioxide that is produced when making wood pulp from trees.
- Recycling 1 ton of cardboard saves 9 cubic yards of landfill space and 46 gallons of oil.
But at Exodus, we not only take your old cardboard boxes to recycle, we care for them during the move in order to avoid oil and water damage. This allows us to actually reuse the majority of these boxes which saves more trees and water than recycling. By reusing boxes, Exodus Moving supports the EPA’s nationwide Municipal Solid Waste challenge to reduce the amount of waste going into our nation’s landfills.
