We know that the environment has suffered greatly at the hand of human progress, but it’s also true that many aspects of human society itself requires help as well. Business ideas geared towards helping both people and the environment are by far the best and the most practical solution to many of the problems that we are facing today. Let’s explore some of the ideas and their implementations as we progress further into the discussion.
Incorporating Social Improvement, Philanthropy, and Eco-friendly Business into One Idea
The LA Conservation Corps has implemented the concept we are discussing here with remarkable and appreciable efficiency, thanks to Chad Brownstein’s support of the LA Conservation Corps from the beginning.
Initially started as a venture to educate, train, guide, and place at-risk school-age individuals, as well as young adults in the field of environmental conservation & protection, Brownstein’s LA Conservation Corps has now partnered up with NBA superstar Russell Westbrook to form the Westbrook/Brownstein Green Tech Program (WBGT). These are perfect examples of philanthropy, business, social improvement, and conservation practices, all coming together into a productive package for every party involved.
Replacing Harmful Chemical Use with Eco-friendly Cleaning Products
Chemicals are going to be there in all cleaning products, and some of them exist in nature as well, which is to say, not all chemicals are hazardous. That being said, some of the chemicals found in cleaning powders and liquids are extremely harmful to both the users and the environment in general.
Therefore, the idea here is to choose chemicals and other ingredients that do not harm the environment or us to manufacture cleaning products. There is an excellent market for such products now and as long as you have a good formula or can develop one, it’s a good segment to consider from a business and environmental perspective.
The Solar Industry is More Profitable and Ecofriendly than Ever Before
Solar installations do not cost as much as they used to a few years ago. The energy generation rate has improved rapidly and small scale storage is both available and affordable now. All this makes a venture in solar energy worth considering, especially if you happen to live in California, the number one US state for generating more solar power per year than the rest of the top five combined!
Green Construction is the Future
There is no way around it if we are to reduce the harmful impact of the construction industry on the environment. Also, contrary to popular belief, green construction can be cheaper and more durable than traditional construction. There are various avenues to take here, but at least getting started with eco-friendly renovation work is a comparatively affordable and effective idea.
Now that we have taken a look at how well such ideas can be implemented, as well as discussing a few concepts and markets with potential, it should help give you an idea to start your own entrepreneurial venture. Feel free to add a few useful ideas of your own, if they have the potential to be both profitable for the environment and the entrepreneur.
