Regardless of whether climate change is a hoax or not, few can argue anymore that the weather has been a bit funky lately. Just this month we had our first snowstorm of the year in the middle of March. Suffice it to say that the weather, quite plainly, is unpredictable. And that may or may not have something to do with people being wasteful. We’re not here to point fingers. We just want to do our part in making the world a safer and more sustainable place. And as it turns out, we’ve figured out a formula that will allow us to do so in a cost-effective way!

The Difference Between Recycling And Upcycling:

Recycling entails taking the raw materials of an object and transforming it into something else entirely. It means taking the basic properties of something and then changing its physical state so that it serves a different purpose entirely. It’s a tremendously inventive and innovative concept. The only problem is that it actually ends up utilizing lots of time and energy to produce. Ironically, this is precisely what we’re trying to prevent when it comes to environmental consciousness.

Upcycling, unlike recycling, does not require any such extra work. Upcycling simply means taking the same exact object in its original form and using it for a different purpose. It requires virtually no extra steps, saves a quick paint job, and a bit of finishing touches, depending on what you plan to use it for in the future. In most cases, upcycling entails a minimal expenditure of energy. In a time when there are well over 7 billion human beings walking the planet, energy is something that we should conserve whenever possible.

Why This Model Is Cost-Effective:

Green technology is a wonderful thing and we here at Great Lakes Kwik Space support it 100%. But at the end of the day, we cannot continue this conversation without acknowledging the factor that is the cost of such technologies. Quite simply, green technology is expensive. Too expensive. But with upcycling, there’s no innovative yet expensive futuristic technology to burn through your pockets. The model we are presenting to you simply entails taking something that already exists and making the best of it. Because the alternative is leaving the container to sit in a storage yard. Why not make the best of what we have?

The list of ways in which one could take full advantage of our storage containers for sale Chicago services is endless. Help us help you make the world a better place to live in by upcycling a storage container. To learn more, give us a call today at 1-800-966-1016.
