Better World Club – Auto & 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.

Cohen expressed her thanks: “We will hang the award prominently and proudly in our Reuse Center, and as we grow, we will continue to use this as a beacon, to continue our efforts to maximize our capacity to provide opportunities and relieve hardship. We know we are in solidarity with Alternatives on these issues. We're a young organization with a mission to enhance community, economy, and environment through reuse, and a priority to serve our community well. Receiving this award has been an honor and an affirmation.”
