    Two of the most important issues of our time.
    The environment and reaching our personal goals.
    If you could work from home,how much would you like to be making?.
    And what would you do with the money?.
    Happy new year.

        It definitely does. It's funny how gullible people become the moment you say you are saving the planet. lol

      Well I am a stay-at-home mother, so we only have one income. It would be amazing to make enough money at home/online to be able to replace my husbands income. What a dream it would be if we could be together as a family even more and travel the world!

      Hi Google Gal.
      Nope.No such thing.
      I just think that there is a genuine opportunity to do just what i said.Nothing under-hand.And certainly,to make any kind of a living working from home takes a lot of hard work and takes real time.
      But if you or anyone is passionate about our planet,specifically the Amazon Rain-forest, and is into being free of the racing of rats...there is a way to do so!

    I'd like to make about $3000+ from home a month. So that i can have a baby and look after it, i'm not sending my child to be cared for by others!!

    Also because, i have no job, havn't had one  for 3 months, i hate the system, and don't want to be a part of it.

      Thanks for your honest answer!
      $3,000 is certainly doable in the kind of venture i am thinking about.

      I know what it might be like to struggle financially.
      Wishing you prosperity in 2010,whatever that turns out to be!.

    I already work at home online with my websites. It does help the planet, no driving to work. I have not been out of the house in two days. Hmmmm, maybe that's why I'm single,,,,,,,, lol

      what kind of websites do you run? I am having trouble picking a niche and could use some help.

      1. Bill Manning profile image73
        Bill Manningposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        You can see some of them in my profile. But what works for one person does not always work for another. You have to pick something you like and you know about.

        HOWEVER,,,, it has to be popular enough to get good traffic. A really good, popular blog can make thousands per month just in direct advertising space.

        But it takes time, like a year or two. Get rich quick is not what the web is today.

      Yes, working from home doesn't do much for your social life - until I tried it for a while, I didn't realise how much I relied on my work colleagues for social interaction, and how quickly work "friends" lose interest if you're not around every day.

      Greenheart - you'll get pretty short shrift from some Hubbers if you start any threads on the forum with a hidden agenda, i.e. trying to sell people something.  This is a social forum, not a place to market yourself or your products (that's what your Hubs are for). 

      I see from your Hubs that you're into MLM and Attraction Marketing, so I assume that's what you're getting around to.  Tip:  it's OK to include a link in your profile to whatever your site is.

    We are currently making approx. $2000 per month selling resale vintage items on Ebay (recycle, renew and be cool).

    Somebody wants to make $$ working from home, I'd say try Ebay first.  Totally possible.

    everyone like to make money from home even if they have other business or jobs,

    but my question is making money from home and saving the planet,can you throw more light on it?

    1. Greenheart profile image60
      Greenheartposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Hi efeguy
      Thanks for your question.
      I am involved with a Company that has saved over 1 million acres of Amazon Rain-forest.It donates 10% of its profits to the region.
      At present the company is operational in the U.S,U.K and Germany.
      So it is an ethical enterprise and has people who are heart centred and genuinely care for the environment.And are business minded.
      Have a happy and prosperous new year.
      Gavin

    I'm working with an inspiring new non-profit called earth.org which has a planting trees scheme in return for businesses sponsoring the project.

    Akhomesteaderposted 7 years ago

    I have a question. Why save a rain forest why not clear it to grow food for the world? I do not understand the logic of saving old growth trees that serve no useful purpose while people go hungry. How much food and other things like renewable non-petroleum based fuel could a few thousand acres of former rain forest produce?

      Akhomesteader, those trees 'produce' the air you breathe.

      1. Akhomesteader profile image80
        Akhomesteaderposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        So does vigorous new growth that comes from food crops and cover crops. By providing alternative fuels the earth will less acid rain trashing the air.

          I can't believe I'm reading this. Compare the depth of roots between a Sequoia tree and a lettuce. Irresponsible tree felling and farming practices have turned large parts of Australia into salty desert land where you can grow nothing. No trees, no mulch, no food for the soil. The soil is the skin of our planet. If we get rid of any more trees, we are not only depriving ourselves from oxigen like TLMinut mentioned, but upsetting ecology as a whole.

      2. Greenheart profile image60
        Greenheartposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Absolutely.
        30% of the world's oxygen comes from The Amazon Rain-forest.
        And oxygen is a pretty important thing!
