Great Variety of Green Jobs
75 Green Businesses You Can Start to Make Money and Make a Difference, by Glenn Cruston, is a terrific guide to get you started in a green career. The 75 businesses are divided into 11 larger segments, like 'Fueling Green Energy', 'Finding Business Solutions in the Living World,' and 'Green Farms.' The reader is encouraged to view the 75 careers as a starting point, and Cruston encourages mixing and matching them and thinking creatively about more opportunities. This makes a lot of sense, as we are in the infancy of the green movement, and many other green work choices will soon develop. For each career opportunity, Cruston provides information on what the market need is for the service/product, the mission, any special challenges, what education is required to do the job, the capital required, the timing, resources and examples of actual businesses. Here are some examples of green businesses: * small wind-turbine installer * Green chief sustainability officer * Philanthropy management * Building green homes and businesses * fab green prefabs * Green building certification * Paperless office consultant * Sell or manufacture reusable shopping totes * Eco-friendly and healthy fast food * Home food safety testing kits * Green bed & breakfast * Green car dealership * Gas free gardening * Green cafes This book is loaded with great real life examples of green businesses and includes lots of resources. As Cruston notes, these 75 job opportunities are just the beginning. A careful reading of the book can motivate and be a great starting point for a successful green entrepreneurial career. Highly recommend. By the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.Was this review helpful?
