I’ve really enjoyed being part of Extra Space Storage’s “Storage Blog” in 2012 and talking about our sustainability efforts at Extra Space Storage. I’m not the only one at Extra Space Storage who’s been busy writing this year. Our resourceful blogging team was very prolific. Together, we wrote hundreds of blog posts on organization, DIY, sustainability, moving, holidays and storage.
Since my writing has focused on sustainability, I’ve decided to gather everything we’ve written related to this sustainability this year. Below is a roundup of all our collective writing on sustainability in case you missed something this year. Enjoy!
