In the last few years, consumers have come to care about corporate social responsibility like they care about products and services. This has seen an increase in green businesses. A traditional business model focuses on maximizing profits. A green business focuses on reducing its impact on the environment. Are you interested in starting such a business? Take a look at these suggestions.

Organic Catering

Have you always wanted to get into the food business? What better way to do that than by starting an organic catering company? You can appeal to wellness enthusiasts and nature lovers by serving locally grown ingredients, organic food, gluten-free, vegan, and free-range meal options. This business idea helps you reduce your carbon footprint on the environment.

Eco-friendly Landscaping

As much as professional landscapers make the outdoors look great, all that maintenance needed isn’t always environmentally-friendly. An eco-friendly business that uses drought-resistant plants and synthetic turf on lawns helps save energy, water, and money.

Green Finance

This business model supports community and local projects with an emphasis on eco-friendly and sustainable agriculture. Green finance usually focuses on funding artistic ventures, offering educational opportunities, and supporting projects that aim to protect local ecology.

Eco-Friendly Beauty Salon

If your passion lies in cosmetology, this business idea is for you. Vegan and organic beauty and hair products are popping all over. You can take a slightly different route and open a beauty salon that only uses natural conditioners and shampoos, and vegan polishes.


If you’re an expert on green living, open an eco-consulting service. Your job is to evaluate other businesses, homes, and offices and offer eco-friendly solutions where they’re lacking. You can advise clients on which appliances to use, plants to get, or how to implement a recycling program.

Farmers Market Vendor

Because of the whole organic movement, this business idea allows you to earn good money selling pesticide-free and non-GMO food in your local market. You’ll have an advantage over your competition for selling naturally grown food.
