1. What is an Ecoconcierge and Relocation Specialist Company?
Have you ever moved to a new place where you didn’t know too many people? Now contrast that to a time when you moved to a new place where you happened to have a lot of friends who were intelligent, fun, green, and a lot like you? How much better did you enjoy the second experience? An ecoconcierge company provides that soft landing for people relocating. In essence, newcomers learn all the great, green stuff to do in their new town, from someone who is an expert in the local green scene. Want to know where the best organic farmer’s market is? An organic foods co-op? Best vegetarian restaurant? The best great organic cafe to hang out in? Where to get a shirt dry cleaned at a green dry cleaner? What about the best road bike rides?
There is almost no limit to the knowledge of sustainable activities that some of us take for granted after we’ve spent years accumulating them from a wide variety of sources and long hours of research. Encapsulating this into an on-demand report for newcomers will help make them more sustainable more quickly, and make them feel right at home. It will also drive business to your favorite locally owned green businesses and stimulate your local green economy.
There are a couple of trends that will create ongoing work for you and success for your business. First, there are 41 million Americans who describe themselves as LOHAS people, concerned about health and sustainability. Second, according to the latest U.S. Census information, approximately 17 million people relocate each year outside of their county. Making these people’s lives easy by providing them the community they’re looking for is like a giant sustainability welcome mat that you roll out in front of them.
2. What required knowledge or skills are necessary?
As mentioned above, you need to have several years experience in your local green scene in order to have credibility to offer newcomers so that they will pay you for your services. You need to be able to provide accurate and up-to-date information, so you need to be organized and diligent.

Interested in starting one in your community? Where do you begin? What permits do you need? Who is your target customer? How do you find them? What is the best use of your limited advertising dollars? What’s the best way to attract a great employee or volunteer? What does an average day look like?
