Is self-storage eco-friendly?


The definition of eco-friendly is not harmful to the environment. As the discussion around Global Warming and Climate Change continues to dominate headlines, many of us are considering what we can do to minimise the damage to the environment, reduce our carbon footprints and improve sustainability in our everyday lives.

Self-storage may not be obviously eco-friendly, but there are many ways in which self-storage can be a sustainable choice for personal and business storage customers. Here’s how self-storage can help you reduce your impact on the environment:

Reduce Landfill Waste

Using self-storage means you can declutter your home without throwing adding to landfill. Storing household items, furniture and personal possessions that you do not have the space for items that you don’t need right now but may require in the future is a convenient solution for self-storage customers who are moving or renovating their property.

However, from an environmentally friendly perspective, using a self-storage unit means you won’t be contributing to the local tip or adding to landfill.

A Convenient Location

Our Bradford self-storage units are located close to the town centre and are ideal for self-storage customers living and working in the area. If you’re local and choose Incredible Bulk for your storage needs, you won’t need to drive for hours to access and reach your stored items. This also means you’ll be reducing your carbon footprint by travelling a shorter

Reuse and recycle

Using a self-storage unit can help you be more aware of your possessions and what you own. When you’re decluttering your home or office, you may come across items still in good condition but that you no longer need. If this is the case, consider donating these items to charity rather than throwing them away. This way, you can declutter your home or office and help those in need in an eco-friendly way.
