Working to make moves good for the planet
JK Moving is committed to sustainable, green moving practices, evident by the over 4.5 million pounds saved from landfills each year – that’s more than the weight of at least 150 elephants.
How is this done? By deploying numerous strategies and processes that support sustainability, including using plastic reusable crates; re-purposing inventory; and employing practices like Zero Waste, where all materials are recycled back into nature or the marketplace in a healthy and environmentally friendly way.
JK’s BoxlessMove® is just one way we incorporate sustainability into our daily work. At our warehouses, we recycle paper, cardboard, and the wood from our crates, and we use a compactor and auger to reduce the volume of the materials we send to the landfill.
JK employs these green, sustainable moving tactics as standard protocol:
