Some of the weirdest jobs you can imagine actually can help you to rake in more dough than you see each month at your current cubicle. To make matters better, these jobs are even good for the earth. Here are a few environmental jobs that will have you going green and getting many more “greens” in no time.
Pearl Diver: If you like the water and you don’t mind working in the Land Down Under, then becoming a pearl diver might suit you well in Australia. Even though it’s a dangerous job, pearl diving easily can pay $1,216 a day. When diving for pearls eco-style, the goal is to use every part of the oysters that are collected (meat goes to restaurants, shells go to souvenir shops and pearls go to high-end jewelry creators).
Master Sommelier: If you like wine and enjoy helping people to find wines that suit their particular taste buds, then becoming a master sommelier is the job for you. These individuals quickly can learn $80,000 to $160,000 each year just by giving advice to clients on pairings with wines and creating wine lists for eateries. To make this job green, push eco-friendly, organic wines for restaurant customers.
Submarine Cook: Those who enjoy preparing fields wouldn’t be hurting if they accepted submarine cook jobs, which pay about $187,000 a year. Part of that total salary is $50,000 you receive simply for being on board, since you have what is considered to be an essential job in the Navy. Cooking organic foods and promoting sustainable meat consumption tips will make your submarine as green as can be.
