A green living consulting business, Vital Eco Solutions (VES), was launched earlier this month. The business is based in Cumberland, MD, serving those areas within a 60 mile radius. VES aims to help clients discover that green living is healthy living and is often cost effective. The goal is to support clients in developing consumer and daily habits that offset negative environmental impacts resulting from seemingly harmless daily habits and the use of many conventional household and personal products.

Proprietor, certified green living consultant, and Frostburg State University MBA graduate, Desiree Bullard, will work with individuals to determine and implement changes to reduce negative impacts. The service will be offered to businesses, as well. For instance, restaurants can reduce or heighten negative environmental and health impacts through the take out containers offered to customers alone. As concerns surrounding global climate change continue to strengthen, consumers are becoming wiser and more responsible. Businesses that implement environmentally responsible practices will appeal to a growing base of consumers who wish to spend their money conscientiously. The difference between a Styrofoam take-out container and one that is biodegradable may be a significant determinant in the decision-making process for such consumers.

VES will also offer clients assistance with the recycling of items typically not accepted at conventional facilities. While the recent expansion of recycling services in the area has provided far more recycling options than ever before, there are still countless items that are not typically recyclable. VES will work with clients to collect items that can be shipped to separate facilities for recycling. Items that can be accepted include empty beauty and personal care products, CDs and DVDs, Styrofoam, broken Christmas lights, various food packaging, and many others.

The foundation of VES is rooted in Bullard’s love for the natural world and recognition of the far-reaching impacts of everyday habits. Services offered through VES will benefit the environment, consequently benefiting our health. Through a vast web of global industrial activity consumerism has become a significant contributor to global pollution, environmental damage and climate change. While various costs are factored into the price setting of the products we buy every day, none of these consider environmental costs. By helping consumers understand the true costs of the products we buy and habits we employ, VES hopes to inspire meaningful change. An aware and responsible consumer is a powerful one.

To learn more about VES, schedule a consultation, or expand your recycling, please contact Desiree Bullard by phone at (240) 522-8413, or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . VES can also be found on Facebook.
