As an entrepreneur, creating a sustainable business can be a great experience. There are significant benefits, ranging from cost reductions to improved brand reputation. Let’s not forget that you’ll be contributing to protecting the planet at a time in which industry is responsible for a large percentage of waste and emissions. This is, of course, to say nothing of the potential profitability of your venture.
As more people are becoming aware of their carbon footprint and wanting to make changes, the home seems like the perfect place to start. However, making your home environmentally friendly can seem like a huge undertaking.
Where should you begin? How can you make sure you’re remaining sustainable? Do you have to change everything about your living space?

What comes to mind when you imagine a professional wardrobe? Sleek suits, slip-on loafers, and power blazers are probably at the forefront of your thoughts.
These wardrobe choices are great for conveying a professional, fashionable appearance, but they usually need replacing with every passing season and aren’t great for the environment.
Now try to imagine an eco-friendly wardrobe. You’re probably thinking of vintage sweaters, tie-dye, and varsity jackets — hardly office material.
Investing in a sustainable, conscious lifestyle is often viewed as an act of environmental service. While there’s no question that sustainable choices will help preserve the environment, living ethically can also bring lesser-known benefits — including many that may encourage consumers to make ecologically responsible decisions and become more supportive of green initiatives. One of these benefits is long-term financial health.
