5 Eco-Friendly Ways to Spring clean

Friday, April 9th, 2021 by Michelle Antrum


It’s almost that time of year again — the sun will be getting warmer and setting later, nature will flourish, and we begin to feel that renewed sense of ambition. Although never effortless, spring cleaning can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding projects of your new year. With spring just around the corner, why wait to clean? 

This season do your spring cleaning the green way! At The Junkluggers, it is important for us to think about the effect we have on the environment in everything we do. We’ve created a list of our top 5 cleaning tips to make your home or business sparkle the sustainable way!

  1. Use eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Did you know that natural products such as lemon, baking soda, and vinegar can be great non-toxic cleaning alternatives? 
  2. Think about where you are disposing items. Your e-waste, clothing, furniture, and more can be donated or recycled. Sort through your items you no longer want to find them a good home or call The Junkluggersto do the heaving lifting and sorting for you! 
  3. Create a compost for your food waste! What better time of year than spring to start a compost for your garden? Eliminate the waste to landfills, create nutrient rich soil, and grow your own food.
  4. Invest in reusable cleaning supplies. This could mean purchasing a mop to ditch the disposable ones or using rags over paper towels. If you have an old towel that is ready to retire, cut it into squares and use that for cleaning rags.
  5. Purify your air with plants! Houseplants like aloe vera and spider plants can improve air quality and even remove air pollutants. 

Eco-friendly ways The Junkluggers impacts the community

The Junkluggers believes in eco-friendly junk removal and being a source for good in our local communities. Here are some ways we pay attention to our ecological footprint.

The Junkluggers are always trying to make the world a greener place to live. One way we do this is through community service.

  1. We donate as many of your items as possible to local charities and donation centers! We work with Habitat for Humanity, Mikey's Way, Alliance Against Homelessness, Lost Paws Rescue, Goodwill, and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few, and our franchise partners work with many local charities in their area to give back to the local community.
  2. We are on a mission to better every community we service. Whether we are participating in community events or just picking up litter on the side of the road during our down time, we are always aiming to paint the world green!
  3. We give back throughout the year with coat drives, toy drives, and Christmas tree drives! Not only does this keep items out of landfills, but it also helps those in need. Oftentimes, Christmas trees we pick up are taken to local wood chippers which could be used to make wood chips for government beautification projects, parks, schools and natural habitats.
  4. We lead eco-friendly e-waste events. Did you know that electronic waste makes up about 70% of our overall toxic waste?
  5. We always dispose of items properly. It is our mission to keep 100% of reusable items out of landfills by 2025. We are on a mission to donate, recycle, or upcycle every item we can.
