We’re continuing our ideas for new businesses (or updates to existing businesses!) that Greenify. How about…
6. Green Marketing Expert. You can help companies develop marketing plans that reduces costs and improve their reputations both with consumers and in their communities. From social media marketing to cooperative marketing and using green promotional products, green marketing methods are in demand!
7. Green Investment Adviser. People that are concerned about the environment want to put their money where their mouth is. They are looking for green ways to invest and want someone to do the due diligence to find green companies as opposed to green washed companies to invest in. Could you be that person?
8. Green Business Consulting. Help businesses that can't afford full time environmental management departments, take the steps toward sustainability. We’ve got a lot of experts here at the Green Business Alliance that will help you help them. (We’re ready to help anyone who wants to put a greener foot forward!) If you can get in there and help them develop a plan, we’re all for that.
9. Boutique Organic Foods for Restaurants. This truly is a new, small business idea and much of it depends on what kinds of things you can produce. It can be done on a small scale on less than 5 acres of land and can provide local restaurants with seasonal produce at premium prices. Might take a deft hand with a hoe and a good supply of the neighbor’s cow manure, but you could find yourself sitting in clover. And producing honey.
10. Green Plumbers. You could help homeowners and businesses reduce their water costs and pollution by promoting, selling, installing green toilets, faucets, and water heating systems. This one is obviously not meant for a “quick start,” but is more of a lifetime commitment and we wish you luck.
As we wish everyone luck who starts a green business or any new venture this year! Good luck Greenifying in 2010. The Green Business Alliance wants to encourage you in every way possible.
