Best Green Companies To Work For

The causes of the environmental destruction on our planet are generally about economics and pursuit of profit. I suggest that the solutions for the preservation and clean up of the environment are also about economics and profit.

For industry, political leaders and average people to take action toward environmental preservation there must be motivation. Waiting till the dire consequences of global warming and the interruption of day to day life as the motivation for action is not a solution. In fact, by that time it may be to late for solutions to work.

People want to know what they can do to be part of a solution now. Because our lives today are busy and complex with many challenges it is hard to find and maintain the motivation and energy for environmental action. Issues like the economy, employment, and health care can overwhelm us. We only have so much time, and we find that much of our time and energy is spent making a living.

What if we could make a living or even get rich working in our green company making a difference contributing to solutions for saving the environment? What if starting a green company was available to most people?

If industry and corporations see a clear profit in being a green company, they will also take action and be part of the economic, environmental solutions.

To start a green company or convert an existing company and make it green we have to understand what that means. The simple explanation is that the activities, materials, by-products and all other aspects of the company do no harm in any way to the long-term sustainability of life on Earth. Profit can be part of the motivation but can not be the sole motivation. There must be a clear passion and desire to be part of this greater mission and vision for environmental sustainability.

Finding a way for an average person with limited investment funds to be able to start their green company is possible. There are companies that offer ways to affiliate. They offer associate partnerships that do not require a large investment. Company success and growth is in the interest of both the parent company and the average person business. The idea is like a franchise without the high cost to get started.

If a large group of people took this step to have their environmentally positive green business marketing green products and services, then the overall market for green products and services would grow exponentially. The larger companies that are causing the environmental problems would see the profits and what a share of this market and decide to go green themselves.

Starting and running your green company is a viable way to take part in solutions for environmental sustainability. By making a profit, this allows people to justify their energy and time.

Part of the reason why there is so little action being taken to turn around the current direction toward environmental annihilation is due in part to a lack of financial motivation. People will take action if there is an income source involved. Being in business for yourself enables you to create the future you want for yourself and for this planet we all rely on.
