Things you can do to move green
Celebrating Earth Day April 22, 2013.
Over 6 million Canadians join 1 billion people in over 170 countries to acknowledge environmental challenges and responsibilities in our daily actions. GoBAC encourages us all to pledge an act of green and think about what can be done to protect the planet.
GoBAC offer the rental of ECO FRIENDLY REUSABLE MOVING BOXES.
We are a Quebec company providing the rental of reusable plastic bins as an eco-friendly alternative to buying cardboard boxes. Boxes are purchased from overstock when possible, from Canadian companies, and rented and reused up to 400 times. This means that each GoBAC reusable plastic moving container replaces 400 cardboard boxes.
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE SOLUTION – GoBAC as a modern moving alternative.
Millions of people move every year and use cardboard boxes to pack their belongings. It’s time to start thinking outside the box and change how we think about moving. Wasting our Nation’s natural resources to make cardboard boxes that are often used once or twice only then to serve as landfill is no longer necessary with GoBAC reusable moving supplies.
ZERO WASTE SOLUTION
According to waste management sources, non-recycled cardboard is responsible for more than 40% of the composition of landfills. If 100 relocations per month switched to using GoBAC boxes, it would reduce waste by 4 tons of paper per month, the equivalent of 48 tons less per year.
With an average weight of 1.3 lbs per box, the typical residential move would use approximately 80 lbs of cardboard. Over the course of just one year, switching to reusable moving supplies has a direct impact on reducing waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Switch to GoBAC and help save:
- 816 Trees
- 3792 Gallons of oil
- 336,000 Gallons of water
- 2 Million kilowatts of energy
- 2880 Gallons of air pollution
- 144 Cubic yards of landfill space.
It is now possible for all businesses to greatly eliminate their negative environmental impact during a relocation/renovation.
Dramatically reduce your carbon footprint by choosing to rent eco-friendly and reusable GoBAC boxes for your next move. Order today and save precious trees!
