Us moving from one place to another, creates an impact on the environment. Good Green Moving has made efforts over the last decade to embed Green and Sustainable practices in doing day to day business. In addition Good Green has partnerships with non profit companies that are helping to restore habitats, afforestation and other sustainable initiatives.
Green Tip #1
Support your local farmers’ market: Eating local, organic foods is easy, delicious, and sustainable. Not only does the food taste better, this choice supports community farmers who raise animals humanely. Buying local and organic food also reduces greenhouse gasses.
Green Tip #2
Support green technology like bio-diesel and electric vehicles: We believe it’s possible to live in a world where our transportation does not harm our earth! However, some “biodegradable products” aren’t as eco-friendly as others. Research what materials are non bio-degradable Replace them bio-degradable alternatives.
Green Tip #3
Plastic — avoid it like the plague! The solution is simply to try not to use it! And we’ve got good news: Many alternatives, like reusable glass and tin (containers) and cotton and hemp (bags) are easily accessible. Avoiding plastic in favor of reusable items will enormously impact our landfills, forests, oceans, and rivers.
Green Tip #4
Turn off your lights when you leave your house. Do your best when you are in your home to use minimal lighting. Not only does this save money, but it minimizes our demand for energy. If you really want to be a trend-setter, turn off your “phantom loads” by switching off power strips between usages.
Green Tip #5
Go solar or construct a wind turbine. If these options are not available to you, then ask your energy provider if there is a deep green option, or a 100% renewable energy option. Marin Clean Energy provides our office with 100% renewable energy, so make sure to ask around your community, or local energy provider.
Green Tip #6
Research the companies you support. Make sure they give back to the global community. Do they have intentions that are aligned with nature? Supporting ethical, conscious companies gives individual people the power to ensure that we’ll have mountains to climb, trees to admire, lakes and rivers to swim in, and oceans to explore.
