Want to make money while working with green technology? The article “Five Ways to Make Money with Green Technology” by Jaymi Heimbuch tells you how to do just that.

The first tip that Heimbuch suggests is “Refurbish gadgets to resell on eBay or Craigslist.” If you like fixing old gadgets, ask your friends, family, co-workers, etc. for gadgets that they don’t use or would like to toss, fix them up to a practically new state and then resell them on eBay or Craigslist.

The second way is to “collect gadgets for resell to refurbishers.” Here, you can offer to “collect the electronics from those in your social circle and relieve them the burden of finding a recycler.” Then, sell the gadgets to companies that will do the refurbishing for you.

The third idea is, “teach people how to use their green home gadgets.” The article states that many are confused as to how to implement new power saving electronics.  This makes for a great opportunity to perfect your knowledge on these products and how to improve on home energy efficiency, and offer your expertise to people for a consolation fee.

The fourth idea states “become a hacker,” hacking in this case meaning to learn how to “hack old electronics and fit them into new technology.”

The last idea in the article says, “make money the passive way.” This means saving money with the gadgets that you have in whatever way you can. Go to planetgreen.com for ideas on how to save money with green technology.
