Earth Day Projects at Home

The team of professional movers at our moving company in Fort Myers wants to assist our customers with every aspect of their relocation, from packing and loading the truck to transit and storage services. But when we leave, what do you do with all the packing materials? We found ways to recycle your packing materials by using them for Earth Day projects you can do at home instead of throwing them away.   

Recycled Art

Is your new house covered in packing materials and old newspapers? Making art with recycled materials is a great project to work on this Earth Day. Brown paper bags can be eco-canvases to design or paint on. Take your recycled art to the next level by framing it and creating a modern art display in your new residence. The sky is the limit on how creative you can be at home. 

DIY Terrarium 

DIY Terrarium-Our moving company in Southwest Florida know used plastic bottles have the potential to be transformed into art like a DIY Terrarium.

Used plastic bottles and tin cans have hundreds of potential uses. This Earth Day, you can build a terrarium with your family and friends. To make a DIY terrarium, follow these simple steps: 

  1. Cover the bottom of your plastic bottle, tin can, or vase with small stones. 
  2. Add a thin layer of activated charcoal to keep your plants fresh and fight bacteria within your DIY terrarium.
  3. Add potting soil for your plants or flowers to grow.  
  4. Place selected pint-sized plants or flowers within your DIY terrarium.

This Earth Day project takes less than 30 minutes to set up in your new home or office. You can be as creative with colors and designs as you want to be. 


Wind Chimes DIY Windchimes- Modern Movers suggest designing windchimes from recycled materials this Earth Day.

Looking to decorate the outside of your house? Our long-distance movers suggest designing a wind chime at home. Wind chimes are a beautiful item you can feature outside your new home or office.
