    Default Starting A Green Business

    I heard that this type of business focuses on conservation of the earth. Examples would be switching to solar power from electricity, getting energy savers on your computers, recycle materials, recycle materials that could be made into other beneficial materials, replacing all candy machines with healthier foods, etc...

    I also understand that Government Grants play a large role in getting these types of businesses started. This is free money only if you can persuade a committee to present you the funds for a specific project that you want to start.

    I am preparring to write up a proposal for a committee to start my own green business. It will be non profit of course and will be ecologicaly functionable. I want it to benefit the community and get recognized by people that matter.

    Does anybody have input in this area of business??

    Default Going green

    Like you, I am interested in green businesses for profit and to save the planet. So far i have seen and like services that are design to change behavior like shopping bags that are replacing plastic bags; information on conserving electricity, water and gas; getting the most out of items by donating used items that are still working to poor communities or salvaging valuable materials like copper from them before disposal. Where would you like to go? Perhaps light energy and better energy storage devices?

    I think that energy is going to be one of the biggest issues over the next decade for the western or developed world.
    I have been looking at micro-generation of electricity in the UK. Where I live, wind is no good, I dont own enough land to make a heat pump pay.
    But, I have found a new type of solar cell called a PV (photovoltaic). This converts daylight (as opposed to direct sunlight) into electrical power.
    The catch is the cost. Even with grant funding in the UK, it costs more to install than you could ever make back.

    Failing these ideas, there is always plain old energy saving.
    For UK users, this is a good start

    Any ideas from other parts of the world?

    Thanks you three for your replies.

    Yes I do believe that an Internet Home Business could eliminate the office and having to drive to work. As far as global warming, that is said to be one of the biggest myths presented to Americans in all of history. Not only does electricity and energy help preserve the earth, also recycling, and re using plastic products. Using less packaging and re using waste for other materials.

    I want to focus on making a business that is 100% natural green. No hazards to the earth.

    The approach is good but the ideas that you've just mentioned like conserving energy and recycling products are highly capital intensive projects. Financing those projects is a big issue. I think you first need to consult your local government or higher concerned authorities for that before you proceed further.

    Going into a green business is a very beneficial matter especially for the environment. One of today’s biggest issues is the ecological imbalance brought by modern technologies. Well, it could not happen if these technologies are properly utilized and not to the point of abusing the mother earth. Humanities and its invented machineries trigger pollutions, global warming, abnormal climate conditions and the like. What can we do to at least minimize or prevent the potential killers of our Earth? The Earth has been laid ill for many decades past up to the present time. Are you not afraid of what might awaits us in the morrow? Very fearful, isn’t it? So we got to do something!

    This is the reason why I really appreciate efforts to save our Mother Earth’s condition. Green businesses like what you plan to implement is constantly playing a big role to regain the beauty of the Earth.

    I admire you for the showing of love and concern towards restoring a green environment. This business’ main benefactor is no other than our Mother Earth. It badly needs hospitalization and I wish that in soonest time possible, the Earth will no longer be dependent to dextrose and medicines. I hope everyone could understand what I meant by it.

    Putting up a green business may not be initially easy to achieve. Like you, you’re on the process of creating a proposal for your project that fits for the welfare of the environment. Of course, before writing a proposal, you need to define one of the environmental issues and dilemmas today. After doing so, try to brainstorm on what might be the possible solutions. For example, if you sought an increasing problem with non - environmental method of garbage disposal, you might think of finding benefits from this group of garbage. You might end –up proposing “Garbage Recycle” project forming a non – profit organization to pilot the initiation and implementation.
    After defining the solutions, state then your general and specific objects for putting up a particular green business. Be able to discuss its benefits and the beneficiaries. Go into details while making a discussion. Give a strong emphasis on its major advantages especially that you’re talking about environmental affairs.

    When the discussion is done, also include the financial investment it might takes to materialize the proposal. Make sure that it will be assessed to be financially friendly project proposal. You must also consider the people involved in the project. It is very important to define the roles of the possible constituents for this project. Please, assure that no financials involved, it’s good if you could really find truthful volunteers who shows the same love and concern for the environment. These people do not expect anything in return of their energy, time, and effort for the green business. Of course, for every kind act, there must be corresponding rewards.

    If you’re up with that, you can now start forming the summary of the project proposal. This time, make it very brief and accurate pointing to the goals of the project for the benefits of the environment.

    This is all I could share with you. I hope that my simple ideas helped you in pursuing this endeavor. I love knowing people like you who express by actions the concern for the aching environment we had nowadays. I wish you success with this green business.
