Better World Club: Auto and bicycle roadside assistance
When former Working Assets Mutual Fund President Mitch Rofsky learned that AAA actually lobbies against environmental efforts like higher fuel economy standards and alternative transportation, he founded Better World Club, the nation’s only environmentally-friendly auto club. Better World Club provides carbon offsets for travel, gives discounts to hybrid auto drivers, surcharges gas-guzzlers and dedicates one percent of its gross revenues to environmental cleanup and advocacy. Better World Club also offers an option for bicycle roadside protection and gives family membership status to domestic partners as well as married couples.

Joe Nolan, Home Green Home
My family's credit union has been Alternatives since '96; We liked the mission, and who could resist banking in a converted house? In 2005 I started thinking about a retail start-up called "Home Green Home" that would sell healthy and eco-conscious home furnishings and renovation supplies. The Business CENTS class helped me to understand and develop the elements of a business plan, and set me on the path to taking the big leap.
At every stage, I've felt well supported by Alternatives' friendly staff. From one-on-one consultation to business banking and credit needs, I've received quick, helpful service at Alternatives. We always look to partner with organizations that share our values, and Alternatives fits the bill.
