Sustainable Ways to Use Storage in Ely

Sustainability is extremely important in every area of our lives. We all want to do what we can to help the planet thrive. Many of us are trying, in any small way, to live more sustainably by doing things such as lowering the amount of meat we eat, recycling, buying locally or trading our cars for an electric one.

At Cinch Self Storage Ely we are also doing what we can and we want to help you to use self storage in a sustainable way.

Here are some tips on sustainable ways to use self storage in Ely.

Choose the right location for storage in Ely

Choosing a self storage facility that is in a convenient location, not too far from your home, is not only a plus for you but it is also a very easy way to be more sustainable.

The average petrol car produces around 180g of carbon dioxide every kilometre so having less of a drive or even being able to walk to your unit will greatly lessen your carbon footprint.

Storage in Ely – Pick the right unit

All self storage facilities will have a range of units for you to choose from. With our self storage in Ely our standards units range from 15 sq ft to 450 sq ft. And then we have business storage, enterprise units, bulk storage etc.

Take your time and choose the unit which is the right size for your needs and that you do not have any amenities you do not need. This will not only save you money but it is a sustainable way to store as no space is wasted. 

Reduce, reuse, recycle 

Whether your storage is being used for domestic or business purposes, try your best to always use recyclable boxes to store your belongings.

And make sure to recycle any other packaging products that you can. Packaging such as bubble wrap can be recycled in your home recycling in some areas. If you can’t within your home recycling, many supermarkets now have recycling points for plastic bags and other soft plastics. Bubble wrap can be recycled at these collection points. To find out if you can recycle it at home or the nearest collection point, check here.

If you can, reuse packaging such as bubble wrap as this will stop you having to buy new. 

Check everything is turned off

When you leave your unit, make sure that all the lights are turned off. And if your storage has amenities such as electricity, make sure all plugs are turned off. This is an incredibly simple way to be more sustainable with your self storage.

And, if you carry this habit over to your own home, it can save you money.

We hope these tips are a help to you when it comes to looking for sustainable self storage.
