Time to move - again. I think I'm going to have an aneurism before I finish this move. But I am optimistic. The city of Raleigh is a mecca of culture with most of the bennies of living in the South. There are communities of eco-minded and creative folks all over town. And my own neighborhood is nestled sweetly among the trees and hills. Raleigh's great for that - not mowing down all the woods in the name of progress.
So moving itself, unfortunately, is not an eco-friendly endeavor. Recycled boxes are available, but potentially filled with critter eggs to transpose to your new abode. Not a pleasant thought. So I got new boxes and recycled them afterwards to become something more than they were. I also saved a few for projects, including a painting surface for giving my furniture a new lease on life. I have a few pieces that need a little pizazz and some eco-friendly paint, so I now have a surface on which to take this on.
