I read the tips, and I endured such a great move. Not only did Harrington's tips teach me how to pack neatly, they also showed me how to use as little environmentally damaging resources as possible.

Harrington is symbolized by its Green themed logo on all Harrington boxes, website pages, and brochures. Switching from the prior purple colored theme, Harrington felt green was a more suitable color for itself. The environment, however, is a 'green' characteristic that the company felt it could improve in. Harrington Moving launched their first ever 'Go Green Campaign.'

The 'Go Green Campaign' required a lot of work, but the company testified to being happy to do so. All Harrington storage facilities were replaced with fluorescent light bulbs, and solar energy technology. Harrington updated a fleet of trucks to newer, more energy efficient models. Harrington truck drivers were also instructed to be cognizant of how much gas they use.

Harrington replaced its moving materials and supplies, with recycled boxes and supplies. The company checked and assured that none of their products were made from old-growth wood products, found in endangered rain-forests. Each Harrington office and truck was provided with a recycling bin, as well as a regular one. All electronics that the company no longer uses, were recycled to prevent E-waste mercury toxins in the air.

"Harrington cares deeply for our environment, so I believe that it is only appropriate that we took the next step and sought to preserve it. There is so much we could do to help, and I am so thankful to have a staff that cares as much for the preservation of our environment as I do." says Harrington President Jeff Harrington.

In an effort to reduce paper usage, Harrington began creating E-receipts, where customers received emails of their receipts and documentations. All wrapping paper, used to safeguard moving materials, were replaced with recycled versions.

Harrington also emailed and distributed 'Environmentally Friendly Moving & Storage Tips' , to its customers. All printed versions were printed on recycled paper, saving trees. The tips consisted of a list of ways that people can help save the environment while preparing to move or store their items.

"I read the tips, and I endured such a great move. Not only did Harrington's tips teach me how to pack neatly, they also showed me how to use as little environmentally damaging resources as possible. They encouraged their junk removal services, and I recycled about 70% of my junk." says Harrington customer Laura Knolles.

This is an ongoing campaign, and its duration is unending. Harrington is constantly looking for new ways to help preserve the environment, and so this endeavor will only enhance as time progresses.
