[GreenYes] Re: New SoCal Green Solutions Newsletter

I think you do not have to get a green grant in order to start a green
business. Women can consider staying home to do a home business and
homeschool their children. You save on fuel, the environment, and get a
chance to stay close to your love ones while they are still young enough
to appreciate you.

Then you can try joining these to get some funds

* Campbells Soup: Labels for Education Program
* Penguin/Putnam $1,000 College Scholarship Essay Contest
* Staples Teacher's Reward Program
* $1,000 International Visual Arts Contest

You can read the details off this link:

I am also look for ways that women can do a green business, preferably
from home. I read a news report that hair extensions are very popular in
US and hair strands from Asian Chinese and Indian are strong enough to
handle colour stripping and other steps it takes to match hair of
customers. This being the case, I think it would be a good idea to
encourage Asians, who tend to keep long tresses, to cut them and
generate a business out of it. Shorter hair means lesser pollution too
because you do not need as much shampoo and water to wash it.

Are there any other green business ideas other than selling eco friendly
product or creating product to sell out of unwanted unused material? I
would love to hear from you on this.

If you are still looking for green grant, trying doing a search on
"sustainable businesses". This is what I have
Grants Program: Sustainable Communities
$65 million in grants were made through the Sustainable Communities
program to mobilize diverse coalitions of business, community, and
government interests ... -

Check these out too. I extracted following from

NATURAL RESOURCES (do not know if the links are still valid)

Natural capitalism has fostered the growth of organizations dedicated to
environmental strategies that don't sacrifice profit:

* Business for Social Responsibility ( is an organization of
companies wishing to sustain success while retaining respect for people,
the environment and ethical values.

* Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economics ( is
a coalition of investors interested in companies promoting sound
environmental management.

* Co-Op America ( is a coalition of consumers and
small companies with social and environmental missions. The site has
hands-on tools and resources.

* The game Environmental Entrepreneur (
introduces managers to environmental planning. The Finnish game is
available from the Technology and Society group in Helsinki.

* Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) was started by entrepreneur Bob
Epstein for business owners who are concerned about the environment but
don't know how to focus their energies. Hundreds of entrepreneurs have
made the $1,000 donation to the Natural Resource Defense Council
required to join E2. Periodically, Epstein asks them to write letters or
to call influential individuals about environmental issues.
