BETTER WORLD CLUB TAKES THE LEAD AGAIN.

Better World Club has taken the lead on Socially Responsible—Impactful—Consumption.

We act as an advocate on behalf of the consumer and demonstrate our social and environmental commitment by: Better World Club, Inc. is dedicated to balancing economic goals with social and environmental responsibility. Better World Club supports a cleaner environment and alternative modes of transportation. We provide our customers with high quality, good value, and environmentally sensitive products and services:

What Makes Us Better

Better World Club strives to be a profitable example of social, economic, and environmental responsibility by supporting consumer advocacy, sustainable transportation development, and environmental projects that remedy the adverse impacts of travel. We are not promising the world. We are just doing our part to make it better. Here is how:

Our Donations

Our donations are largely in the form of carbon offsets. Offsets help neutralize the greenhouse gas pollution that is associated with the burning of fossil fuels. When you drive in your car or fly in an airplane, harmful gases (including CO2) are released into the atmosphere. Our Foundation carefully screens and selects offset projects to neutralize emissions that are directly contributing to global warming. Contributions have been committed to the following projects:

Green Operations

Being green isn’t just about spending money on environmental projects. Many things we do are small but they keep our daily operations in line with our public advocacy.

Driving Change

We believe in the power of consumer-based change. We don’t lobby with your membership dues, period. We do act by working to keep you informed and engaged, so you will speak up for what you believe in both with your voice and with your money. Check out and sign up for our advocacy e-newsletters, Kicking Asphalt and Buying Power. ​

What's in Our Wheelhouse?

Everything with the Better World Club starts with our mission; to protect you, your family, and our planet. In doing so we became America's first and only green auto club. We are also the only auto club to provide 24/7 nationwide roadside assistance for bicycles. We fight the good fight against the dreaded Highway Lobby (think of this group as the Galactic Empire) and its acolytes as Storm Troopers (did someone mention AAA?). But that's not all. Starting this year, Better World Club launches our most ambitious services yet... Buying Power! Over the last 17 years, we have worked towards this moment where Better World becomes the Club for Socially Responsible Consumers. Make your impact and join today!
