10 PROFITABLE GREEN OR ECOLOGICAL BUSINESS IDEAS
We present 10 business ideas respectful of nature for green entrepreneurs. The concern for the environment is a sales argument with increasing relevance for companies, and concepts totally focused on caring for our planet can be very successful, as long as they can be competitive with existing businesses.
Take advantage of renewable energies
1- Installation of solar panels
Using solar energy can be very interesting in some cases, especially in a bright country like Spain. You can think of a company dedicated to installing hot water systems by solar panels in old buildings, or more simply to market these mini plates that serve to recharge the mobile and other electronic devices with battery.
2- Mini wind installations
The wind is also a great ally when it comes to producing renewable energy. Many areas of the country have habitual air currents, and installing a small windmill on the terrace or on the roof could be an option to reduce even a little the electricity bill.
Change the transport model
3- A Delivery company with electric scooters
Electric motors have improved a lot, and if their autonomy is still limited, they perfectly allow to think of a delivery company with electric motorcycles. It can be delivery of small parcels or even for food delivery companies.
4- Electric taxi service
Another very good option to avoid polluting the atmosphere with greenhouse gases is to set up a small taxi company with a fully electric fleet. To compensate for the lack of space in the trunk, an additional storage system can be installed on the roof.
One of the aspects to keep in mind would be to optimize the routes and the recharge times of the batteries since it would not compensate to have the cars immobilized too long.
Products that respect the environment
5- Green cleaning products
There are already cleaning products on the market that claim to be respectful to the environment. However, in many cases, they are still harmful, although less than standard products. In this case the idea is to create a concept similar to what already exists for cosmetics with The Body Shop or Yves Rocher and move it to household products.
6- Ecological clothes
Clothing is another interesting market for organic products. From the way raw materials are produced (mostly vegetables) to the treatment of the textile product and its processing, a whole process can be designed without harmful chemicals and that does not over exploit natural resources to offer a range of ecological clothing to while fashionable.
Do not waste more water
7- Rainwater collection system
Designing a rainwater collection system for buildings and houses would allow its inhabitants to have a non-potable water tank so as not to waste clean water, for example to water plants or flush the toilet. An interesting business concept could be to simply install these collection systems.
8- Audit of water consumption at home
Some time ago we had discussed the possibility of setting up an energy consultancy for individuals, neighborhood communities or companies. In this case, you could think of a company specializing in water, which makes a diagnosis and offers practical solutions.
Among the solutions are installing filters in all taps that allow using less water with practically the same sensation of pressure, or separate the consumption by houses when all the houses make a common use of water (which is usually very expensive).
Promote local production
9- Fruits and vegetables in the area
An interesting business idea is to revolutionize the current model in the distribution of locally produced fruits and vegetables. We all know from the news that producers charge a very small part of the final sale price of fresh foods, and much of the problem comes from the number of intermediaries between the farmer and the final consumer.
One can then imagine a company with two objectives: to offer products at a good price to the consumer paying better prices to producers (eliminating intermediaries) and above all to sell local products, which, being from the area, indirectly generate much less CO2. And if the production process is ecological, the concept would still be more interesting.
10- Products with 100% national components
Following the concept of food, we can think of manufacturing food whose components are all locally or nationally produced. Again, having no imports, the ecological impact is much less. But food is not the only sector where the 100% national concept can be used. In any industrial product, one could imagine a completely local elaboration, although obviously according to the complexity of each article it would cost more or less.
We had already talked about the commercial argument that selling Spanish products could represent, and at the time we had insisted on the environmental impact. The advantage of this concept is that it touches more aspects, among which the increasingly widespread awareness that importing so much destroys the industrial fabric and employment.
