Are self storage units good or bad for the environment?

    In order to see if self-storage units are bad for the environment, you have to ask yourself what they’re made of and what service they provide. They use up large amounts of space and employ concrete, steel, and other building materials. In the sense that they use resources, disturb ecosystems, and don’t give back to the environment, they are technically ‘bad’ for the environment. On the other hand, if they didn’t exist, it’s tough to say if all the excess storage items that people would now have would have a safe place to store. It ends up being a bit of a wash. If people can reduce their consumption so they don’t need a storage space, that’s the ideal environmental situation, but for some people that’s just not possible.
