  • What is a side hustle?
    In today's fast-paced world, many people want to make extra money to supplement their main income source. A side hustle is an extra job or business you do outside your main source of income (it can be more than one). It is also a way to chase your interests, try being your own boss, or pay that mortgage. But not all side jobs are the same, especially when it comes to their impact on our environment.

    Why is it important to be eco-friendly?
    Sustainability is not merely a trend; since Al Gore’s declaration, it is now hugely important. As the world faces off against climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and overall planetary damage, it is more important than ever to make decisions that are good for our planet. This applies to the side jobs we have. By consciously choosing to embark on green ventures, everyone wins.

    So here are some side hustles that will bring in the payoff for both you and the Earth.

    1. Crafts that help the environment:

    If you are crafty with your hands, there is a market pool for green crafts like jewelry made from recycled materials, organic soaps, and reusable shopping bags. With marketplaces like Etsy, it is easy to reach people all over the world looking to shop sustainably.

    2. Blogs or videos about the environment:

    Start a blog, YouTube channel or even TikTok account to educate audiences on green living. Sustainable topics are limited to your imagination. From home crafts, reviews of eco-friendly products to green education, there is an audience waiting to consume your content. And the more followers you have, the more chances you have of securing sponsors and making money from ads.

    3. Farming profits from an organic garden:

    Turn your green thumb into cash by starting a specialty store selling organic produce. With more education, shoppers are demanding fresh and organic vegetables and fruits. You can sell them at farmer's markets, in local shops, or straight to the customer via the web.

    4. Be a tour guide for the eco-conscious:

    If you live in a beautiful place (and you probably do since there is something beautiful in everything), you might want to share the natural beauty in your neighborhood. Waypoints can run the gamut of heritage conservation buildings, camping, bird spotting, and organic farms. It is a great way to show people how beautiful nature is and teach them why it is important to conserve it.

    5. Become a sustainable fashion mogul:

    Fast fashion is one of the worst inventions of this modern world. Clothing designed to be discarded after a few wears is incredibly wasteful and pollutive. By making a sustainable fashion line or reusing old clothes to make new designs, you can appeal to the growing number of people who want to wear clothes that are good for the environment.

    6. Consulting for the environment:

    If you know a lot about sustainability, you could help businesses that want to go green by giving them advice. ESG (environmental, social, and corporate governance) certification is a big thing right now. You could be helping corporations be more mindful of waste and energy conservation, and through them have a huge impact while earning consulting fees on the side.

    7. Choose to trade forex from home:

    Forex brokers like Forex4you allows you to earn an income without high overheads and allows you to work from home. You do not need to build infrastructure or travel for your job. The main upside is a reduction in your carbon footprint. Plus, if you do your research and use the right strategies, you could be extremely profitable.

    8. Clean, greenly:

    Start a cleaning service that only uses green cleaning supplies. There is a large market for in-home cleaners and by choosing sustainable and non-toxic products, you are helping the environment while providing hygienic environments for your customers.

    In conclusion, there are many kinds of side jobs. But if you make a conscious choice to go green, you not only boost your income, but you will give sustainability a boost, too. And given the dire environmental state of the world today, that is a side job worth putting money into.
