The full Green Distributors origin story can be found on our About Us page: https://thegreendistributors.com/pages/about-us
Our mission is to provide a helpful resource for people along their Zero Waste, Eco Minimalist, Low Impact journeys.
My driving motivation is to raise awareness of actionable ways that people can make a difference through creativity, mindfulness, and simple lifestyle changes.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Becoming a member of 1% for the Planet. I am also currently working on Carbon Neutral Certification.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I have no employees to delegate tasks to. It can be a challenge to find the time to do everything and to make sure that no task (big or small) gets overlooked or forgotten about. This can also have a direct impact on my work/life balance.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do thorough market research before you invest any money into a product or idea.
- Know who your customer is and how to reach them.
- Choose something that you enjoy learning and talking about.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I also have a second business coming soon. ATH Reusables for handcrafted, reusable products and zero waste stickers. The web address for that store is www.athreusables.com.
