Small Business, Going Green, and Your Customers

Environmental concerns and sustainability usually aren’t high priorities for small businesses, and for good reasons. Many “green” efforts cost money, more than what a small business can afford to give away.

The Intuit Business Blog offers some ways to save money and go green at the same time, especially in customer interactions. Not only does this help the planet, it can help your reputation as a responsible business.

Some of the advice the blog gives includes going paperless as much as possible, not overdoing packaging, using ground transportation instead of air for shipping, greening the supply chain, and marketing eco-friendly practices.

Take a look at your business today, and see if there are ways that going green can save you money and increase your business, all while helping the planet.
