Top 5 Sustainability Websites

Posted by: Annika Darling @ Nov. 21, 2014, 1:18 p.m.

Since this blog is about promoting sustainability, we might as well promote others who are promoting sustainability as well. Or, in other words, we’d like to take a moment to give props to a few amazing green websites that frequently give rise to topics we tackle in our newsletter, Kicking Asphalt, and here on our blog.

  1. Grist

Grist is one of those sites we are sure you have heard about! And if not it’s time you did. Grist tackles the ups and downs of environmental issues in a way that is spunky and entertaining. As well as always being up to date on hard hitting news stories they always find a way for the weird and the wild. The variety of topics and the wit that inspires this website should not be missed!

  1. TreeHugger

Along with scooping one of the coolest names for a green website, Treehugger has a style that is unmatched. They are suave and sophisticated and make you want nothing more to think what they think, live like they live and simply be a part of their cool little world. Log in and be a part of it now!

  1. Dot Earth (New York Times)

As a New York Times online publication, Dot Earth maintains a serious journalistic tone. It is a well informed site with highly researched articles. The information you find herewithin will be insightful, crediable, and presented in a way that is professional and well-written. Enjoy!

  1. Climate Change (Guardian)

There are many sites out there dedicated to Climate Change, but few do as good a job as The Guardian -- they are a Pulitzer Prize winning publication afterall; they obviously know what they are doing. Read this site with every confidence that you are not being led astray, but in fact are being presented with the most up to date information available. This site oozes with trust and perfection.

  1. RealClimate

Real Climate is a fun website for all you science geeks, or wannabe science geeks, or amatuer scientists, or just anyone who likes science! I know the staff at BWC can’t get enough of this site, and if you haven’t yet visited you are surely in for a treat. But be fair warned that this site may led to an addiction for upright awesome science news!


Quotes From Members

  • "Also, I'm really pleased that I found Better World; it really suits the values of my family and, by the way, my congregation and my grad students. I don't know how many in either group belong to any auto club or travel club, but they surely would be ashamed not to join up with BW if they ever join any. :)"
  • "Thanks again for your prompt and courteous and helpful support."
  • "This claim was the only time so far that we've needed to use our BWC coverage, but it was exactly what we needed in that situation, so we'll definitely keep our memberships active in case we run into issues on future rides!"
  • "You serve your market with intelligence and humor. I didn't feel like I was a family member when I had AAA, but I feel like an important part of a socially-conscious family with you. Keep the newsletters coming."
  • "Thanks very much! I switched to BWC because I believe you share my values and concern for sustainability. The hybrid discount is a great added bonus. It's great to see businesses thrive on a positive progressive message."
  • "My alternator gave out suddenly one night. I was stranded on a frontage road near the freeway, in the dark, in the rain, a couple hundred miles from home late on a weekend night. When I called BWC, your representative asked if I was in a safe place, dispatched a tow truck, and asked if I needed help finding a hotel for the night. Needless to say, I was impressed. It's good to know folks like you have my back!"
  • "Your newsletter is full of stimulating information--not only revealing the truth about companies/regulations that are unfair, unconscious, or downright despicable, but also highlighting positive efforts and developments for a better world. Really appreciate it. And also enjoy your sense of humor."
