You’ve been hearing a lot of these Eco Companies popping up from left to right. And it’s not only a growing trend, it’s also becoming a business goal for many of these businesses. Many businesses are jumping onto the bandwagon and there’s a reason why they are better.
But just in case you’re not sure, what are Eco Companies anyway?
Eco companies are businesses that have taken a proactive step to reducing theirenvironmental footprint. There are a lot of big names that have gone into an eco-friendly direction like IKEA, Patagonia, Lush and even Google has aimed to use recyclable materials with all its products in 2022. Global footwear companies like Nike and Adidas have also joined in the green campaign. Small companies also have joined in likeTentree, Too Good To Go andCaseco
But why bother at all? Why are these hugely successful companies changing their business structure?
People are more and more in tune with the environment. With the advent of the internet and social media, education about the earth and widespread environmental consciousness is now more prevalent. We have to be thankful to the younger generation who have taken on a huge task of becoming earth warriors.
Young and brave minds likeGreta Thunberg have taken on the challenge to knock some sense into our world’s political leaders. Following the emerging youth who are conscious about their responsibilities to the earth, companies have decided to step up to meet them halfway.
Guy Kawasaki said it very well. “Great companies start because the founders want to CHANGE THE WORLD, not make a fast buck.” Companies that go beyond mere profit develop a sense of liability for others.
There is care, there is humanity within the walls of an eco company because they think first before jumping in to something that will earn them a fast buck. They ask questions, they take the time to know first if what they get into is sustainable and will benefit both the company and everything else around them. Great companies have foresight to look before leaping and to check before charging.
Great companies are built on their people and purpose, beyond profit. There are many things to change in our world today, but change is only possible when we all work together. So hope onto that bandwagon and support eco companies, both small and large scale businesses and make a difference today.
