Better World Club Members Get a Better Deal to Compare Cars

Consumer education and other market-oriented approaches to improving the environmental performance of automobiles require information that is easy to understand and readily accessible. Too much burden is placed on the consumer to gather the information necessary to optimize marketplace decision.

That’s what "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" (below) is all about. Better World is working to make it easier to obtain the information on the social costs of products. Such information can influence both buyer decisions and manufacturers' technology and product innovations.

To provide such information, Better World and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) have teamed up. ACEEE, publishes the Green Book®: The Environmental Guide to Cars and Trucks, an annual consumer-oriented guide providing environmental rating information for every new model in the U.S. light-duty vehicle market. Better World has a deal for Better World Club our members.

One month (normally $9.95) and one year (normally $19.95) online subscriptions will be available to Better World members at 50% off starting October 15th. At that time, you will find the code that enables Better World Club members to obtain the discount in our Members Only section. For a sneak preview, click here now to see ACEEE's ratings of the Best of 2005 cars. You will find the link in the discount section after you have logged in.

The Green Book will enable members to compare cars, vans, pickups, and SUVs by their environmental impacts on air pollution and global warming, and learn which vehicles are the "Best of 2005," including the "greenest" and the "meanest."

Additional features include:
  • how to buy the cleanest and most efficient vehicle;
  • listings for electric and other alternative fuel vehicles in addition to gas and diesel
We asked ACEEE to lend Better World members the money to buy the cars, but they demurred. They then started lecturing us that they are about providing wisdom, not possessions. For more details on the soundness of this philosophy, contact them.
