Making the Orange County Move Green Style

Posted on May 29, 2011. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Making Life Easier, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , |

Whether you’re moving into or out of an Orange County home, you probably have a ton of stuff to lug along on your journey. And that, of course, means you’ll be needing an assortment of boxes and other packing materials for the thousand and one household belongings you’ve accumulated over the years. Now what if you could get your hands on the required packing materials and be a friend to the environment all at the same time?  You can with Green Packaging. This outstanding service will provide you with everything from boxes made of recycled materials to biodegradable poly bags. Once you have the needed boxes, make sure you reuse the heck out of them. And when the hard-working boxes have served their purpose, give them to somebody else to use over and over and over again. Both the recipients and our planet will appreciate the gesture.

But packing is just a starting point. Here are a few other eco-friendly solutions for folks on the move —

  • Don’t trash unwanted items. De-clutter by connecting with CraigsList or And be aware that the Habitat for Humanity Restore will gladly accept virtually any of your donated belongings. After all, one person’s trash is another man’s treasure.
  • Request a green termite clearance.
  • If re-doing landscaping, consider using native plants to reduce water use and runoff.

Does anyone else have some eco-friendly suggestions for people on the move? We’d love to hear about them. Just fire off your ideas below. Or tweet @weeksteam with #green.

And be sure to reach out to us if you have any questions. You can connect with our green team at 949.338.7408 or,  @AngieWeeks or @WeeksTeam.
