Eco-friendly business ideas:
- Green Home/Energy Consultant – meet with homeowners to help show them the ways that they can make their home more eco-friendly, reduce their carbon footprint, and save money.

Scooter rentals around campuses would cut down on the need for students to have cars to get places that a university/city transportation service may not go.
- Eco-friendly cleaning service – just like a traditional cleaning service only your focus would be on using only organic and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
- Recycle trash into treasurer – most people just toss things into the trash without thinking about any other potential use. Now, entrepreneurs and designers are taking trash and turning it into cash. Products such as purses made of old license plates and more are starting to show up all over the place.
