The Good Green Moving & Good Green App business model explained:

Good Green Moving & Good Green App solve income inequality; by providing livable wages and an opportunity to utilize sweat equity to become a licensed business owner and have a Good Green location.

Good Green Moving is providing opportunities to our employees to work their way up to eventually owning their own locations through our sales platform and management software, the Good Green app.

The licensed Good Green business owners will be making 70% of every gross sale made through the Good Green App and the business owners can reach this goal within one year of working within the company once they master their skills and become experts.

This means all of their employees are incentivized to do the best quality of service for their customers because they’ve made a dead end industry a career option.

They donate 1% of their gross revenue towards 8 featured nonprofits that are standing up for social and environmental issues; CFI, Sierra Club, Rotary International, Turning Green, Pachamama Alliance, Turtle Island Network, Marin School of Environmental Leadership and the San Francisco Green Film Festival.

All of these organizations are doing a tremendous amount of good for their local and global communities.

They also donate 1% of their gross revenue towards rebuilding habitats around the world, starting here locally by planting 10,000 Redwood tree’s in Samuel P. Taylor national park to help rebuild the Coho Salmon Population.

Eventually, once this marketplace scales for a $700B industry, if they able to take 10% of that, which is $70B and they donate 10% of their net profit or 1% of their gross, that would be $7B generating towards rebuilding habitats.
