How to Make Your House Move More Eco Friendly


No matter where you move, there is no denying that your relocation will be creating a certain amount of C02. Many removal companies work hard to reduce their carbon footprint and implement sustainable projects to help offset C02.

Find the Right Company

Buzzmove estimated that the CO2 footprint of its removal companies adds up to 72 tonnes a year so it is important to choose your removal company with care if sustainability is important to you. Ask your mover about their focus on fuel efficiency, if they have ULEZ compliant vehicles and if they are partnered up with organisations such as Carbon Footprint. Most reputable movers will also have a CSR policy available on their website which will outline their responsibility to the environment.

Since the pandemic virtual removal surveys have become increasingly common and if you are looking for a number of quotes it might be wise to choose companies who offer this service. This will save fuel, time and CO2 emissions.


Choosing a removal company that can offer packing services can be incredibly helpful but this usually means endless reams of bubble wrap and packing paper. Paper and cardboard packaging waste going to landfill has risen by a whopping 110% over the last decade so avoiding single use packaging is paramount. Find out if your removal company is recycling and/or reusing their packing materials. Furniture covers that can be re used, biodegradable bubble wrap and recyclable paper and cardboard are all things to look out for.


Moving house is often a good time to change our furniture, especially if old items don’t fit with the aesthetics of your new place. Before disposing of your furniture at landfill ask your movers if they work with  local charities or organisations who take donated furniture. Charities such as The British Heart Foundation and The Salvation Army will take items either to sell in their stores to benefit their charity, or donate them to shelters and hostels who are in need of the furnishings. Either way you are contributing to the circular economy and it is benefiting your local community. A double win.
