Here are a few great tips to clear out that messy space and be environmentally friendly at the same time.
-Disposing of harmful products and chemicals properly makes a big difference. Any leftover paint or dead batteries should not end up in a landfill. Make one trip and take all items to a disposal facility near you.
-Donate unwanted clothes and household items. This is a great way to reduce the number of items that are added to landfills every day. It is also an excellent way to contribute to a local charity.
-Have a garage sale or sell items online. This is another great way to find a new home for unused items, and will make you “greener” in more ways than one.
-Fix items that are broken. Rather than replacing broken items such as tools or appliances by purchasing new ones, consider fixing them instead.
-Find a new purpose for items. Whether it is craft supplies for the kids or getting creative yourself, there are lots of ways you can find a use for most of your forgotten but once loved items.
-Use green cleaning products. Once you have all the clutter out of the way, start using environmentally friendly cleaning products. Also, store your newly organized items in recycled storage containers.
