So if you are looking for a start up business idea, perhaps these few will spark your imagination:

Bicycle Shop

In the last couple of years, the complete go green craze has resulted in tons of people resorting to alternative methods of transportation.

Of course, you could spice up things a bit by implementing a coffee shop into your bicycle store and combining business with pleasure.

Great news for all of those who enjoy the rural surroundings and also know their way around agriculture. Organic farms have been rising in popularity in recent years by promoting a healthy and nutritious diet with fresh and safe foods that are not treated with any chemicals. Starting an organic farm gives you a lot of opportunities. Other than the fact that you can sell your organically grown products, you could also sell compost, develop an ecotourism business or offer some green consulting. 

Rubbish Removal

Believe it or not but there is actually a quite simple way to turn your trash into cash. Yes, you have read that correctly, services that do junk removal are gaining in popularity and becoming more profitable by the minute. These kinds of services are actually focused on gathering excess waste which is later sorted and redistributed to accredited recycling or transfer stations. How cool is that?

Green Architecture

This business idea, sometimes even referred to as green design has only one purpose and that is to turn your home into a sustainable residence based on eco-friendly building materials and safe construction practices. The living building, as some call it, is designed in a way to minimize the harmful effect on the human health and the environment by using alternative sources of energy, non synthetic materials and also water saving plumbing, energy-efficient appliances and green ventilation systems.

Is there a better thing in the world than running a business and saving the earth in the process? Well, if you still wish to start your own business and become a successful eco-entrepreneur, these few green business ideas guarantee a positive outcome. The whole word is slowly turning to sustainability and these business ventures are only going to become more popular among ambitious people.
