Set up an organic beauty salon
It has come to a point that consumers are concerned about the various chemicals that are included in the products that salons utilize in their beauty treatments. So change the game. Why not introduce an organic beauty salon? Use only natural products in your establishment – from shampoos to soaps to makeup. Make it ecofriendly with minimum waste and use of only biodegradable products. Make it into something that Mother Nature would approve.

Set up an organic food store – for farmers market vendors
Most farmers in rural areas lack the facility or the opportunity to feature their products in the market. So seize the day and be the middle man. Approach these farmers who practice organic farming and feature their products in your stall. It’s a win-win situation. The farmers get to sell their produce, the consumers get organic goods and your business will thrive as well.
Due to the many merits associated with organic eating, many growers are looking out for organic fertilizer to use for their crops. Market yourself as an eco-fertilizer provider. Collect organic waste from those who want to get rid of it and make your own fertilizer. Then package it and sell. Again, a win-win situation! The organization from whom you collect the waste get rid of their waste effectively and you are making profits selling that waste!(image courtesy: evergreenprofit, festivalandshows, staticuk.)
