Earning Green by Going Green

As the prices of gas and food continue to rise, Americans are finding themselves and their families in need of extra income to help support their daily living expenses. The Happy Gardener offers people home-based business opportunity in the eco-gardening industry. Focused on educating families and communities on healthier, greener alternatives to conventional garden and lawn care.

Ashland, VA, June 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- As the prices of gas and food continue to rise, Americans are finding themselves and their families in need of extra income to help support their daily living expenses. However, how does the working mom fit a part-time job into her already hectic schedule? And how does the full-time professional find extra work in addition to his/her current fifty-hour work week?

Home-based businesses offer people the flexibility to choose when and how much they want to work based on their personal and family schedules and financial needs. Jennifer Martin of Medina, Ohio is able to supplement her family income by starting a home-based business with The Happy Gardener, an organic garden and lawn care company. She explains how “in the busy corporate world where daily stress is the norm, The Happy Gardener brings enjoyment to my work life. As a mom who works full time, I can set my own pace and direction.”

The Green Movement has arrived, and families and communities throughout the United States are taking responsibility for the future health of our environment. Jeffrey Pollock, president of Global Strategy Group, explains the results from a recent poll. “Americans tend to prefer to buy from companies that reflect their values and are increasingly likely to buy from companies that demonstrate they are good for people and the planet.”

The Happy Gardener began in 2003 and provides people with the ability to work from home by educating families and communities on healthier alternatives for garden and lawn care. Independent Garden Consultants offer The Happy Gardener’s exclusive line of organic, non-toxic plant foods, pest and weed control and lawn care that are safe for children, pets and the environment.

“Imagine your Avon lady “going green” by trading in her lipstick and perfume for organic lawn weed n’ feed and pest control,” states Annette Pelliccio, founder and CEO of The Happy Gardener, Inc. “But our opportunity is not just for women,” she points out, “almost half of our distributors are men, many of whom are professionals in the landscape and garden industry.”

Clinton Noble, owner of Noble Landscape in Castro Valley, California also has a business with The Happy Gardener. He explains, “The thing I like the most is that I can share our organics with my customers as well as fellow landscape business owners. We are able to help the environment with our line of non-toxic products. Being in the industry, I believe that I can help make a difference by teaching the reasons why it is important to convert from conventional practices”

The Happy Gardener has received a variety of publicity as a result of their unique business model. New York Times Best Selling author, David Bach, recommends The Happy Gardener’s business opportunity in his recent book, Go Green, Live Rich, Prevention and Entrepreneur magazines featured The Happy Gardener in recent articles, and Women’s Day and AOL have both listed The Happy Gardener as a Top 10 “Make Money from Home” Business.

“It is so exciting to be able to take your passion and turn it into an income-generating business,” says Pelliccio, “We are helping those with a commitment for green living to earn a green living. I believe the saying ‘If you do what you love you’ll never have to work again.”
