5. Green app developer.
People who want to go green often do not know where to start, so why not help them out? If you know how to develop web and mobile applications, you could create one that tells users how they can adopt a greener way of living. You could either make an application that discusses sustainability as a whole or you could focus on niches such as:
- Energy conservation
- Buying and making eco-friendly products
- Green living at home and at work
6. Uber driving.
You may not have thought about this, but Uber drivers are saving the world one step at a time! It’s an easy career to start and do. As an Uber driver, you’re encouraging ride shares, and ensuring people in your area are getting to where they need to be, safely. You’d also be delivering food, which would reduce fuel emissions.
7. Social crowdfunding.
Similar to microlending platforms, social crowdfunding is where social entrepreneurs find funding for their projects. You could create a social crowdfunding platform that links humanitarian projects to those willing to fund them. Instead of charging high interest rates and fees, they are offered a promise in return for their monetary investment. For example, positive advertisements highlighting them as investors or a lifetime membership to their company projects.
8. Creating a betterment program.
Help those in need better themselves by creating a space whereby they can learn new employment skills that will help them get back on their feet. It could be a restaurant where you train and hire people in need to teach them skills with which they can start a career or even an e-learning course in business, marketing, or web development…the opportunities are endless. The profits of your establishment could go to paying and training them as well as creating new programs.
9. Writing ebooks.
Similar to blogging, e-books allow you to teach others new skills through a digital book that will cost readers a fraction of the price of a printed copy while offering them the same level of education. E-books are free to start and can be sold on huge platforms such as Amazon. You could even donate copies to not-for-profit organizations who believe in your cause.
10. Create an educational travel company.
More people are saving their money to see as much of the world as they can before it changes. Not only this, travelers have become increasingly interested in visiting countries where they can be involved in a community project. Although these types of matchmaking websites do exist, why not start an online travel company that:
- Educates people about the country in which they will be volunteering
- Tells volunteers what equipment they will need
- Shows travelers where they will be living
- Offers insights into the country in which they’ll be working
- Offers all-inclusive packages (e.g., flights, accommodations, food, transport, volunteering, etc.)
People have become more aware of their surroundings. The news allows us to have a better understanding of what is happening around the world and a lot of it isn’t good. Everything we do as human beings has an impact and the business ideas outlined above are not only a good way to make money, but also make a difference.
