Nowadays the term ‘sustainability’ is mentioned very often and this is because it has become a significant environmental problem, which everyone should take in mind. We have to try to be more eco-friendly and sustainable because we are the main reason for all environmental damage. However, we are also the solution, so everything is in our hands.
Willbox has always thought and continues thinking of the environment - in what way we can be better and be as sustainable as possible. Thinking of that…what is the best way to be more sustainable than using multipurpose containers?
Containers are different from the houses that we are living in and the construction sites that we are constantly working on. Containers don’t need many materials like our homes, which are made from many layers of expensive materials. The construction sites also require work for months, sometimes years, and money, which can be invested in something else, for example the interior of the place. Not to talk about how expensive it is to pay all the workers and construction firms, but also for all the materials and time wasted. This could easily change with a bit of thinking outside the box.
The containers are easy to move around and if you get the idea that you want to go live in a different country or live next to a lake, well then, this is the perfect sustainable solution for you! If you decide you are bored of them, you can reuse them or sell them and you will still make a profit and do a favor to the environment.
By using containers you can also save energy and make a sustainable choice because they reduce carbon emissions by removing the need to manufacture new constructions.
Especially, with the increment in electricity bills, you would want to save cash and the good thing is that because containers are small they won't need that much heat. Their good isolation is also beneficial for that case because it protects the container from bad weather. In addition, they are quite durable and won't need that much maintenance and replacement; if needed, they won't be as expensive as for your house.
By not using many building materials and supplies, and that much space, you are contributing to the environment and to yourself as well by letting natural space.
Containers could be transformed into many things- bars, shops, garages, and even homes for others. Imagine the freedom you can have by purchasing or hiring a container, it’s all up to you!
