Green Moving and Packing Tips for New Yorkers Headed to Albany in 2011
While some of New York’s 2010 midterm election results have veterans sticking around, quite a few newly elected statesman are about to head upstate for the first time. Among them of course is Andrew Cuomo, who’ll be headed back to New York Governor’s Executive Mansion in Albany not as a first kid, but as the head honcho. Being New York moving experts, we’re here to offer Governor-elect Cuomo some timely moving and packing tips to help ease his transition into his new digs – and we’re going to help him do it the green way!
Green Moving and Packing Tips for New Governor Andrew Cuomo:
- Don’t Just Pack – Sort or Clear Out! Moving is an opportunity to cull through your belongings and see what you actually need. Instead of throwing unwanted belongings away, why not donate it to a local charity instead? Social giving AND recycling – those are two political platforms we can get behind. What you can’t part with – put in storage like ours for safekeeping.
- Think Less Stuff, Less Impact. The 154-year-old Executive Mansion is the first historic governor’s residence in the country to earn LEED Gold status. Governor Cuomo can help lower the fuel consumption of his vehicle as it makes the 3-hour drive from Mount Kisco to Albany by bringing less stuff.
- Bring Peanuts For the Move, But Not the Packing Kind. We all know that non-biodegradable Styrofoam makes great packing materials but won’t keep you on the greener side of the moving spectrum. If you have fragile things that require special packing, our storage advisors are here to help with solutions that are great for everyone – the environment. For example, can you pad that lamp with your towel collection, instead? Or, try buying starch-based biodegradable packing peanuts from among the other moving and packing supplies we offer.
If anyone has any other moving tips for Governor Cuomo, let’s hear ‘em! And remember, if you ever feel like following in his footsteps, we’ll help you pack up your stuff and store it for you too!
