Greenified Business Opportunities

March 2, 2010

Looking for more ideas for Greenified businesses? They are out there. Some are obviously "side businesses" and others will take awhile to grow, but that's the nature of all green things, isn't it? Here are some ideas just to get you thinking:

What about starting a business for "green maid services." This is a small, home-based business idea involving having cleaning personnel go to a home or office, but only use all natural cleaners for their customers. The appeal is great because many people are becoming sensitive to chemicals, perfumes and other aspects. This is an idea whose time has come.

Along the same lines, natural pest control. If you are already in the business of pest control, then you know how important this is. It's time to open up the doors on pest control, and either go for it fully with all natural pest control involving no chemicals (always preferred) or at the very least, begin selling those services in a special offering. We've seen here at the Green Business Alliance that consumers will pay more for green services and this is one that would undoubtedly sell.

Green Dry Cleaning? Same goes for these customers. Using safer solvents and advanced technology for non perc (a dangerous carcinogen affecting industry workers and too often, the properties where these chemicals are used) is an attractive alternative. It's a big selling point, particularly among those of us who have known people in the dry cleaning industry. It's a lot safer for everyone.

Lite packaging consulting services. If you've ever consulted, this may be an area where companies are reconsidering. You could provide information about greener packaging to save money and landfill. Information services require extensive research, but the information is out there and available. If you are the one providing it to businesses, you could recoup some of the money you help those companies save on their packaging.

Car sharing. Community car time share. "Zip Cars" are very handy alternatives to full time vehicle ownership and maintenance. If your community doesn't have them, then maybe there's an alternative that you could organize. Not everyone needs a full time car, but sometimes, they need access to a handy vehicle. Consider the options in your community and whether that could put you into a green business of your own.

Greenifed business opportunities exist, and with a little thought, effort and hopefully, a tiny investment, they could be something that would benefit you and the community around you.

LM SKINCENTRE 四季皮膚護理——冬 皮膚護理 皮膚資訊 香港的冬季雖然不至於太乾、太寒冷,但對皮膚而言亦是一大挑戰。冬天的皮膚問題主要由乾燥引起。 寒冷的天氣令皮膚油份減少,暗瘡問題通常會減少,但隨之而來的便是又乾又痕的皮膚。加上在乾燥寒冷的天氣下,有些人會選擇開暖氣,令室內的温度提高,但與此同時濕度就會降低。那就是說,室內的空氣就會變得更乾燥了。很多人在春夏時分皮膚完好無恙,但一到冬天,全身就開始不自覺地發癢,尤其在夜間睡覺時,更是奇癢無比,難以入睡。異位性皮膚炎、魚鱗癬、皮膚缺乏性濕疹等都是在這種天氣下常見的皮膚病。 冬天時皮膚需要特別照...

CHARLIE SKILLEN: While fans around the world were glued to their screens to watch the Champions League final – not to mention 65,000 packed into the Estadio do Luz, I had a day with a difference. I flew out to Ibiza to the Heineken Star Final, and watched the game with Real Madrid hero Fernando Morientes and former Atletico star Luis Garcia.
