Big corporations have a luxury that small businesses don’t. They have more money to invest towards being environmentally friendly. A small business often has to juggle between cost efficient and going green. Thankfully there are a number of things small businesses can do every day to boost their going green plan.

Step #1: Use recycled printing paper. This one isn’t hard. Most printing paper available in stores has already been through the recycling process. Using refillable ink cartridges can also help you go green and save you some money. You can also cut costs and go green by sending e-mails instead of printed memos or newsletters.

Step #2: Use natural and earth friendly cleaning products. Most small businesses have some sort of cleaning crew, even if it is the boss doing the moping, and using natural cleaners can really help add to the green image. Cleaning services could really get a boost in environmentally conscious customers if they used only earth friendly cleaners.

Step #3: Use solar powered lights in landscaping. Many small businesses with a store front like having some type of light along walkways or by their entrance. Security lights are also often placed at back entrances. Using solar powered lights in these spots can both save on the power bull and help protect the environment. You also wouldn’t need a professional electrician or landscaper to install them. Many low priced solar lights can be installed with a simple stake in the ground.

Step #4: Make a donation or volunteer time to local gardening or plant a tree organizations. While this may not sound very productive it is a great way to add to your green image. It is also a great way to help the environment. Plants are vital to the earth’s ecosystems and atmosphere. Also, think about how great a photo of the boss and other employees planting saplings or seedlings would look.

Going green is an idea to help protect and heal our planet, and the advantages of being green will help concrete the futures of our children. While small businesses can’t always invest thousands of dollars into solar power and other green methods they can still profit, both financially and personally, by taking smaller steps towards going green.
