These green business opportunities offer sustainable solutions for environmentally-conscious customers
Today’s franchisors have figured out all different ways to go green, giving eco-minded investors the opportunity to own a lucrative business and still feel good about what they do. Here, we outline eight eco-friendly franchises that run the gamut in the types of services they provide.
The non-toxic beauty industry is currently valued at $532 billion. Freecoat Nails (above) is helping investors get their piece of the booming market with its eco-friendly franchise opportunity. Founded by Clean Juice franchisors, Kat and Landon Eckles, the non-toxic beauty bar sets out to do for beauty franchising what Clean Juice has done for food franchising: make it more natural and safer for consumption. Each location provides nail and beauty services without all of the toxins, fumes, and other harmful chemicals found in typical nail salons. They are also equipped with hospital-grade ventilation systems to evacuate fumes and circulate clean air.
Smash My Trash
Smash My Trash is an eco-friendly franchise that provides an innovative solution to managing commercial and industrial waste. The service provides onsite compaction of open-top containers, including municipal solid waste and recyclable materials. According to the company’s website, the service reduces container waste volume by up to 70% and saves more than 50 million pounds of CO2 annually. With an ever-growing need for waste removal, this innovative business model allows franchisees a simple and unique opportunity.

Cleaning services will always be in demand, but eco-friendly franchises like Ecomaids appeal to a more sophisticated, environmentally-conscious customer base. Built on a mom’s desire to avoid harmful cleaning products, Ecomaids was created and is committed to using only non-toxic, allergen-free green cleaning products that are better for the health of its customers and their pets

No-H2O calls itself the Uber of car washing. This on-demand car washing service uses a mobile app that allows customers to have their cars cleaned anytime and anywhere in an eco-friendly, waterless way. According to the company’s website, traditional car washes use 35 gallons of water to clean one car. No-H2O uses none. Their method also prevents harsh chemicals from entering the drainage system. Operators can deliver waterless carwash services via several different modes of transport, including cars, scooters, and even bicycles. With 60 franchises, this fast-growing green franchise is perfect for forward-thinking, environmentally-conscious investors.
