A green business idea aims to make life easier, not only for consumers, but for entire communities as well. There are numerous green business ideas that aim to minimize ecological impact by coming up with solutions for environmental and social problems. Here are some green business ideas that can work for you:
With factory farming and animal agriculture becoming one of the key reasons for climate change, people have resorted to reducing the consumption of meat. Launching a vegan restaurant gives people a healthier alternative to the usual fatty and cholesterol-laden fast food they’re used to. Faux-meats and fake cheeses are easily available for the vegan diet. This kind of business can easily grow in cities where there’s already an established vegan population, such as New York.
Green General Store
Even if people are ecologically conscious and would like to purchase green products that don’t harm the environment, it often requires a lot of research to find out what’s environmentally friendly and what’s not. A green general store would reel in customers interested in purchasing green products, but don’t know which ones to buy. Even if there would be tough competition with big names like Target and Walmart, a green general store would be a niche store that could build its own customer base.
Green Cleaning Service
There has been increasing interest in green cleaning services due to the prevalence of household products with indoor pollutants. With this green business idea, the traditional professional cleaning service is combined with the advantage of utilizing tools and cleaning products that are environmentally friendly. Some ways to go green with your cleaning service business is to use washable linens, save on water usage and switch to vacuum cleaners with efficiency filtration (HEPA).
Organic Personal Care Products
Organic personal care products don’t have to have chemicals that are hazardous to the environment. There are farmers who use renewable resources and grow organic ingredients without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. According to the Organic Trade Association’s Manufacturer Survey, there has been an average increase of 20% in organic sales over the last ten years, and this figure is expected to grow considerably in the next 20 years.
