When it comes to environmentalism, we have a long way to go to get to where we need to be, and thanks to rampant industrialization, it may be too late. But, let’s not be grim. Let’s look to the future in a positive light and try to make the best of it. We all need to make money to get by in this capitalist world, right? Well, yes and no, but for the purposes of this article, the answer is yes. If you’re looking to make some extra cash on the side or quit contributing to the destruction of planet Earth for a paycheck, here are some suggestions.
First and foremost, there’s foraging for wild edibles. What better way to feed your family or make an extra buck than to find and sell free food? If you do your homework and are willing to work for it, finding these wild edibles is a doable way to bring in some extra income or even become a full time job. When it comes to edibles, themselves, some of the must haves are chicken or hen of the woods, fiddlehead ferns, and the elusive, but incredibly valuable and lucrative morel mushrooms. You’ll have to know when and where to look for these items and be willing to get your hands dirty to find them, but restaurants pay top dollar for these freebie delicacies, so grab some sustainable outdoor gear from Patagonia and get out there and find your fortune today.
Foraging can also be very fun and a great activity to share with friends, family, and even pets. Not to mention great exercise, so you can benefit wildly (get it?) from foraging for wild edibles. So, there’s no reason for an environmentally conscious person like yourself to not take nature up on this opportunity, but don’t get greedy, be sustainable instead.

In this article, we will discuss about Environmental Sales Hiring, from the point of view of Daniel from Sales Experts Executive Recruiters. As recent studies suggest, few employees are willing to sacrifice good corporate culture, and they’ll even trade it for a raise when asked to choose.
Particularly in the sales industry, employees want to sell products that are compelling and interesting to them. In fact, 78% of those surveyed would accept less pay if they could sell something more compelling. In Environmental Sales, this can be especially important as employees seek to find corporate cultures that align with their views.
Understanding and Implementing Culture
Company culture should not be mistaken for company perks. While a company’s culture can definitely be a perk, the culture of a company is based on its norms, traditions and communication styles. When corporate culture is done correctly, you’ll be known as a brand that people can trust and a company for whom people love to work.
Employers today are seeking companies whose cultures include good work-life balance. Those with perks like discounted day cares, laundry services or other perks that help employees better manage their time are almost always worth a small trade in salary. To find the truth about what your future employees may be hoping exists in your company’s culture, follow some of the tips below.
- Talk to your former employees. If you are still able to reach former employees who may be open to a lunch outing, these people are the most likely to tell the truth about what they found to be lacking from your company’s culture. Expect brutal honesty, as these former employers won’t have anything to lose from being honest with you.
- Use anonymous surveys to ask current employees their thoughts.
- Encourage open honesty and confidentiality in the workplace. This will allow employees to feel more comfortable discussing problems that may be keeping great employees from applying at your company!
- Look at reviews on sites like Indeed and Glassdoor for a look at what former employees are saying about your company.
- Conduct exit interviews for those leaving your company. These interviews can provide valuable information from those willing to do them, and most employees are open to discussing why they left after another job is secured. Ask questions such as “What did the new company offer that you wish would have been offered here?” “What are some ways you feel the work environment could be changed to promote more honesty and idea sharing?” “Did you feel like anything was lacking during your time here?” Of course, a satisfaction survey can be given as well with more specific questions.
Cultures Employees Love
While different types of companies do and should have very different cultures, some things are popular across the board.
- Options that help work-life balance such as child care perks, gym memberships, laundry services or complimentary counseling services.
- Continued training. Employees can start to feel they have “topped off” if they don’t see themselves promoted and no new skills are learned. To keep employees from feeling stagnant, encourage mobility within the company and offer continued training. It’s mutually beneficial!
- Clear missions, visions and values. Employees want an honest picture of the company and where it strives to go.
Overall, before you look to add another member to your Environmental Sales team, you may want to take a look at your company’s culture and how it aligns with the type of people you are striving to attract at your company.
