What are business ideas which women must start?

At the ancient time, it can be said that women can’t do any work or business; they are only limited up to household works. But now the time has changed, women are working like men in many fields with spending time with family. Now women have made their positions in different fields which also help them financially without spending time on money or other expenditure. There is much business which women can try from their home if they dare to work especially when by simply looking at import export data, they could find affordable suppliers they could work with should they decide to put up a business. 

There are many types of business ideas for women to choose them and help them to develop their skills. They can also try this business from their homes which can be more gratifying. Here we are discussing some of the business ideas for women.

  • Event planners

An event planner is one of the best business for women to start; there are events held like birthday party, marriage, or any other occasion in which they need to plan that event. As all parents do not have time to prepare different items for their kids in the events like parties, etc. so women can try with their homes by becoming an event planner, and it would be the best business idea by organizing in different events and help them to earn some money.

  • Online selling

Women can sell their handicrafts and art items online; it is one of the best business ideas for women. They can have skills of making different handicrafts like wooden crafts, bags, shoppe and many more items from their homes. Or be an agent and affiliate who sell home furniture from websites like milanihome.it. They can sell those items and earn a lot through that and provide you with more opportunities to develop their skills, and it is best to start their online journey. They can also tie-up with different companies, which needs different types of art and give you the pay for that.

  • Freelancing

Freelancing is also the best idea for doing work from home. If one can have excellent writing ability can participate in it and can earn a fair amount of income at a daily or monthly level. There are many things in freelancing like content editing, affiliate market, blogger, coach writers, etc. which women can choose from them and easily can do from their homes. If your writer is famous, then it can also be published in books and magazines. It gives you pay based on hours spent on the work. And since you’d be busy working at home most of the time, it would be ideal to have IP cameras from www.amcrest.com/ip-cameras.html installed around your home.

  • Start laundry service

Women can also start laundry service from their homes which is the best business idea for them. It is the perfect way to start a business with no investment. In this, they need only laundry equipment which can also available at your home and provides them with a better opportunity for developing their skills. This business will top for women to start a small business idea. They can also do laundry services by delivering them.


These are some best business ideas for women to start, which help them to develop their skills and provide better opportunities. Above discussed ideas are enough for understanding, and you can try them and earn some money through them.


Applying design to environmental issues


In our consumer oriented society, the design of the items we commonly purchase often falls victim to marketing the virtues of cost and convenience. How often do we think about design and the environment in the same context  and what can we do about it?


The design attributes of our homes and work places start with the environment in mind  mostly to keep warmth in and cold and rain out  but our most commonly purchased consumer items are often designed with little consideration for the environment.


We see hundreds of examples of this in our visits to our shopping centres, but probably remain blissfully unaware it.


Our food is beautifully presented in packaging that is designed to minimise cost and maximise convenience and appeal. About 60% of New Zealands plastics production is used for food packaging (domestic and export) in one form or another. People will happily buy bananas and oranges wrapped in polystyrene and cling film instead of relying on natures packaging, fruit skins, to keep the edible contents clean.


Daily shots of functional foods, bakery items, meats, dairy products, soft drinks, spreads, snacks and a host of other foods, and non-foods, are presented to consumers in plastics or made with plastics  and we buy them. Then we dispose of them without thought to the consequences because a truck comes along once a week and takes them away – out of sight, out of mind.


Those of us who think we care about the environment when we make our purchasing decisions will choose items designed and packaged in recyclable plastics and we put the waste materials out on rubbish collection day. But how environmentally friendly is plastics recycling? Is it better than nothing, or are there alternative approaches?


Non-renewable petroleum resources are used to make most of the plastics we currently use, but with each cycle of recycling (melting and reuse) the properties of the plastic deteriorate and eventually the plastic cannot be reused. Non-renewable fuel is used to pick up the plastics and transport them to recycling centres. At the recycling centre the plastics have to be hand-sorted and then more fuel used to transport each type of plastic to a reprocessing plant where more energy or fuel is used to melt and reprocess the plastic. Fuel is again used to take the recycled plastic back to a manufacturing centre and then back to the consumer as a product and the cycle of energy use starts all over again.


World-wide, concerns about the environment and sustainable use of finite resources have been a major driver behind governments legislating to try and force manufacturer and consumer behavioural changes. This in turn has meant that in the last twenty years or so, there has been increasing scientific research directed towards finding alternatives to oil-based plastics. Some of these alternatives are now starting to emerge as commercial products  they are new materials (e.g. biodegradable plastics) based on using feed stocks such as starches, oils and proteins derived from plants or of microbiological origin. Ideally this alternative approach will bring us closer to truly sustainable production systems that are not using non-renewable resources, but we still have a long way to go.


Most of our modern farming systems rely on external energy (fuels) and nutrient (i.e. fertiliser) inputs. The latter, such as urea, are largely derived from petroleum resources. Truly sustainable farming systems in the future will probably have to be built around acceptance of lower crop yields as a result of less intensive nutrient inputs within totally closed systems. To do this, we can design and develop compostable packaging out of some of the new generation plant-origin materials such as poly-lactic acid. End-of-life disposal of these materials into composting systems would mean that we can then add the compost back to our farms to replenish nutrient loss.


Having addressed potential solutions to our environmental challenges, where does this leave design?


Design can help lead the way by developing new farming, industrial and social systems. Design can also lead the way by learning how to use the new generation materials for both new types of packaging and as structural components in the household and industrial items we use daily. This will be a major challenge as these new materials do not have the same chemical and physical properties as the oil-based plastics we have become used to. Hence new industrial and product and marketing designs will need to be developed.


And as consumers we will need to change our lifestyles, expectations and habits to enable this to happen.
