Todd Silberman and Mitch Rofsky met forty years ago in an Ohio Cub Scout troop. Little did they know that someday they would create Better World Services, Inc. Wouldn't their den mother be proud? (There's so much more to tell about Todd and Mitch in their youth: from academic honors to the culture of the 1960’s—you know about the 1960’s don’t you? But we thought you'd be most interested in the Cub Scout story.)
Better World Club's founders worked their way through law school in the 70's, Todd as a travel agent, Mitch with winnings from game shows like the Joker's Wild. Upon graduating, Todd sensed the airline industry beginning to deregulate. He seized the opportunity and co-founded the third largest travel agency in the U.S. before selling it to American Express in the early 90's. Todd was an innovator at the cutting edge of the fast evolving industry.
Meanwhile, Mitch selflessly dedicated himself to the public interest, working for Ralph Nader's Public Citizen —(this was Nader well before he became a politician). He later helped to provide the initial financing for the socially responsible Working Assets Mutual Fund and became its President in 1991. He was the first chair of Business for Social Responsibility, and in 1996 founded just such a progressive business, American Consumer Insurance which is now Better World Insurance, Cambridge MA.
While test marketing the insurance program in Massachusetts, Mitch was approached by environmentalists who were fighting AAA on issues like Clean Air and Mass Transit. Mitch thought there was an opportunity to compete with AAA as well and Todd agreed. But there was work to do. Better World Club has grown through the efforts of a commited staff whose dedication to social responsibility spans every aspect of travel -- whether when from flying around the world, renting a cottage in Ireland, or riding a bike to work.
