5 Great Green Tips for Organizing Your Garage

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Thanks to our busy lives, many of us often find our garages overflowing with clutter. It’s easy to ignore a disorganized garage, but you might be surprised to find out that your cluttered garage could actually be having a negative effect on our planet. To help you reduce your carbon footprint and transform your garage into a more pleasant space, here are five great green tips for organizing your garage.

Dispose of Chemicals the Right Way

If you have old cans of paint or chemicals in your garage that have passed their expiration date, you could potentially be releasing toxic fumes into the air. These chemicals can have a negative effect on our ecosystem, so find a local chemical disposal facility near you and get rid of them the right way.

Recycle Old Furniture and Cabinets

The garage is a great place to put those old cabinets and furniture pieces to good use. Use old kitchen cabinets left over from remodeling projects to create smart storage solutions in your garage. Old dressers and bureaus can be wonderful solutions for storing old odds and ends that are taking up space.

Check Your Insulation

This tip applies particularly to those who have attached garages. If your garage isn’t properly insulated, you might be paying more than you should be on your monthly heating and cooling costs. Check your garage for any holes or areas that need to be properly insulated to reduce heating and cooling waste.

Have a Garage Sale

If you find some valuable items in your garage during your big cleaning project, don’t just put them out with the trash where they’ll likely end up in a landfill. Instead, have a garage sale where your junk can become someone else’s treasure. Not only do garage sales help to reduce waste, but you might end up making a nice bit of extra cash.

Maintain Your Clean and Eco-Friendly Garage

Don’t become the person who has an annual garage cleaning day each year but then inevitably lets the mess and disorganization start to accumulate again. Instead, commit to maintaining your new clean and eco-friendly garage. Just a few minutes of straightening up each day can make a world of difference when it comes to keeping your garage green.

It’s important that we all do what we can to lead green lives and reduce the harm we cause to our earth. Follow these tips and you’re sure to have the most eco-friendly garage on the block. Make sure you get a new garage door opener if yours has been lost because you haven’t used it for your car in a long time Most importantly, you will be able to actually use your garage for parking your car instead of for storage.
