As a small business it’s important to set yourself apart from the competition as part of your marketing strategy! Using sustainable practices or “going green” is a great way to accomplish this.

If you are a restaurant, you may want to consider composting as a way to both be more sustainable and to distinguish from the competition. Your customers will appreciate your attempts at both being sustainable and, perhaps more importantly, reducing food waste. Food waste is a huge issue in restaurants, and composting is a great way to reduce this problem! Other ways to embrace green technology include exchanging your old appliances for more energy efficient ones, and installing low flow sinks, showers and toilets wherever possible. Restaurant owners who are considering selling their restaurants should follow recommended steps to make sure you get the most out of your investment!

Small Business Saturday is a great way for any business (that is small) to participate in getting more sales. See your local chamber of commerce or search online for more information!
