There has been a shift in what consumers look for when choosing to convert with companies.
And with the impact of climate change becoming increasingly more apparent, many customers look to brands that demonstrate their concern for the environment.
It is more important than ever for us as consumers to actively engage with brands that make a choice to be eco-friendly. And as businesses, it is essential that we take steps to ensure that we operate sustainably – not only is it good for the planet, but it will help earn the loyalty of your customers.
Here are just five businesses that are working hard to ensure that their products are environmentally friendly.
Aside from the fact that the price of petrol is at an all-time high, cutting into your monthly budget – and causing you to wince every time you go to fill up – there’s no denying that electric cars are better for the environment.
Tesla is one of the leading names in electric cars, and the push toward clean energy has seen its popularity rise among road users.
Food waste is a big problem for the environment, and research shows that an average of 22% of a family’s weekly shop is thrown away. However, Olio is an app that lets users rehome food that they are not going to eat.
The app is growing in popularity, with 2 million portions saved from wastage. Users simply post a photo of the food, and those wanting it can organize to collect it.
Water pollution is a problem that has disastrous effects on the environment and our health, and Smart Storm is a leading name in water pollution prevention.
They’ve worked hard to develop methods all businesses can implement to ensure that they’re not contributing to the problem of pollution.
Through innovations such as removing fats, oils, and grease from wastewater tanks to the measurement of water quality, they’re helping to protect the planet from pollutants.
Finding clean sources of energy is more important than ever, and E-On is one of the many energy companies that are pushing for solar power.
They encourage their customers to have solar panels installed in their homes, helping them not only save on their energy bills but actively work towards slowing the progress of climate change.
By tailoring their packages to meet the requirements of any home, they ensure that solar power is an option for anyone who wants it.
Not everyone will have heard of Lush. However, the brand is becoming an ever-popular name in the beauty world – who does not want a bath bomb that will turn the water into an intergalactic pool?
Even better than that, though, Lush is actually one of the most eco-friendly brands around. This all-natural beauty company is committed to showing customers that they can get the best results without the chemicals used by other big beauty names.
Not only that, but they sell shampoo by the bar, no more plastic bottles polluting the planet!
