Hate Your Job? Recycle It.

If you’re like me (and if you’re reading this, I suspect you are), you likely are not content with the typical nine-to-five workplace and/or are seeking for a way to connect your passions for green and natural living to a paycheck. Let’s face it: most people are tired fed up with the rat race – too much florescent lighting, box-like office spaces, endless background noises, and meaningless progression.

In considering a change of situation you really have two of options: find a job that fits you or, if you are the innovative type, you can make your own. While upstarting your own business may allow you to stay truer to your ideals, there is a growing list of companies doing great things in the name of all things green and natural.

In the past, locating positions with green companies was typically done by word of mouth, mostly due to the fact that the businesses tended to be smaller scale operations. With the trend now towards conservation and protection of resources, the search has become a bit easier. There are now a number of sites that list job postings, focusing particularly on companies that are environmentally conscious.

Here’s a list of job sites that focus on the environmental aspects of business:

TreeHugger Jobs
Monster Jobs
Career Builder
Green Jobs
Sustainable Business
Green Biz
Care 2
Renewable Energy
Environmental Defense Fund
Rodale Institute
World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF)
