Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

In late 2010, business student Dan Blake was at an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant when it occurred to him that an unbelievable amount of the restaurant’s food was ending up in the garbage. Blake began thinking of possible business opportunities by taking the waste, converting it, and selling it back as another usable product.

The result was EcoScraps, a national award winning organic and sustainable compost mix which has been called a “Top 25 Most Promising Social Venture in America.” Not only has Blake enjoyed amazing margins, but his process diverts over 20 tons of food waste a day from local landfills. By removing this large amount of decomposing waste, to date, EcoScraps has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 9.16 million pounds of methane, the equivalent of parking 844,442 cars for two weeks.
