I've started a small business and one of my goals for this business is that it become as eco friendly as possible.
Its online retail so some of the more obvious ways is
-to limit long journeys for the products to get to ME and then limit long journeys when I sell. So focus my products on WA products, and focus my sales to WA (I offer free pickup in Perth).
-I cant limit myself to WA or I will never make a profit. But I can then make sure that any products I sell interstate/internationally are carbon neutral.
- packaging to be as green as possible. I've found a good product, expensive but seemingly enviro friendly, its cardboard and tissue paper that functions instead of bubble wrap - and you don't need to use sticky tape either.
-know the origin of the products I sell. I already mostly sell either australian made or fair trade products. but say one of my suppliers makes beaded jewellery - I'd like to know the origin of the components and ensure they are the greenest options available.
- all paper and office supplies to be recycled paper and waterbased ink.
- have a recycling system in place to limit waste.
- get audited and become 100% carbon neutral
- what else?

I think the best way you could do your part is to just start using electric or hydrogen vehicles. Light duty EVs are getting common these days.
