Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Native Proverb
ECO-Organizing is exactly the same as residential or corporate organizing. I work the same with every client I have. First I need to know what isn't working for you. In other words "What do you need help with?" If you say "my paperwork" for instance, we will start with your files. Perhaps we can make room by shredding some, recycling some & storing some papers in another area.
If you say "My kitchen is a mess!" We'll start there & I will donate unwanted items instead of putting them in the landfill, recycle what I can and make sure only kitchen accessories are in the kitchen.
I have been recycling since I was a little girl growing up in the 70's. So of course I will make sure that things do get recycled. If you want to go further I can teach you ways to cut down on paperwork & adopt habits to protect the planet, but only if you want to do this. Never do I insist that clients adopt habits they are neither interested in or could not implement into their lifestyle.
It's all up to you! I am a very good listener. How can I help you?
Did you know there was a group of organizers that meet monthly to educate themselves on green living so that they may help others?
ECO Organizers, Environmentally Conscious Organizers
“For organizers who offer services with a significant emphasis on lessening the client’s impact on the earth, and on demonstrating methods and systems that reduce, reuse, and recycle wherever possible. Additional services may include: donating client discards, recommending recycled and eco-friendly products, or encouraging “green” environments by means of eco-audits.”
This is one of the most heartbreaking images I have ever seen. Please don't let this happen. Personally I use paper bags. I figure they will dissolve in the water and in the forest. I use them over & over until they start to rip then I use them for my recycling. For easy access I place one under the sink until it is filled. I change it often so it doesn't smell.
Anyone can do this. No excuses!
