As a concept, Green Entrepreneurship has been around for over 30 years now. People all over the world have been telling everyone about the importance of creating businesses with an environmental conscience.
Companies and factories are responsible, to a certain degree, for the destruction of the environment. They will need to take the first step into saving it.
A large number of people believes that being a Green Entrepreneur is not going to be very profitable. Especially if we consider that fact that, starting as a green entrepreneur can be a bit more expensive than starting as a regular entrepreneur. That is not the case. Being a Green Entrepreneur can be just as profitable as any other entrepreneurship business, if not more.
For example, let’s take a look at some Green Businesses that are making a great profit and that are, at the same time, are helping save the environment:
- GPA is a Chicago paper company. This company has devised a way to use calcium carbonate and limestone-derived mineral powders to create paper. They do not have a need to use water or trees for the production. The paper is a lot cheaper and it is growing more and more famous all around the world.
- Tesla Motors is a company known to the entire world. Its founder, Elon Musk, has focused on creating electric motor vehicles that are eco-friendly, cheap to use and have made M. Musk a millionaire over the past few years.
- Bionic Power INC is a company that uses your body energy to charge batteries. More specifically, the device they have created weighs two pounds, and it uses the power your body creates, when you are walking, in order to charge portable batteries.
Green Enterprises and companies require time. They need people with true environmental spirit and most importantly, truly thoughtful ideas. As it is with regular entrepreneurship, you need innovation. Something that the world needs. Perhaps something that no one has thought about before. And of course, something utterly connected to saving the environment.
June 5th is World Environment Day. The world celebrates. Green Companies are the reason why the world is slowly returning to a ‘’healthier’’ state. But change is still very far away. Becoming a green entrepreneur will add a lot to saving the environment, our planet, our home. Analise the costs, process your idea, and start working with the environment. Not against it!
