How “green” is your small business? That’s a good question, considering the growing awareness of environmental and sustainability issues. And it’s more than just a fad; it makes economic sense. Many green operational strategies can prove less costly in the long run, boosting your profit margin.

And usually, a company’s website is the first place prospective customers go when those search engine results come up.
