Do good and save a little money

A couple of months ago I heard about the Better World Club while listening to Car Talk. The company provides roadside assistance and travel services like AAA does. However, instead of lobbying for more highways like AAA does, they support all sort of environmentally friendly things. They don't cost any more than AAA, and for the first year they give you coupons that you can use to get reimbursed for $40 of gasoline purchases.

Another money-saving, eco-friendly thing I discovered are some ways of purchasing auto insurance in Massachusetts. You can get a discount on your auto insurance (I think it is 6-8%)in Mass if you get your insurance through Better World Club, or through the Environmental Insurance Agency, which is affiliated with the Conservation Law Foundation. You get a 10% discount with CLF, but you need to be a member of one of a short list of organizations (CLF, AMC, Audobon Society). Both of these insurance agencies are actually selling Plymouth Rock insurance.

Tell 'em Alec sent you.

Wouldn't you know it? I just renewed w/AAA. They've got a real racket because the insurance savings makes the membership free. I'll check w/Better World next time because even a cynic like me is in favor, at least in principle, of a better world.

Oh, yeah, one thing I meant to mention is that you can cancel AAA and/or change your insurance any time, and get your membership fee/premium prorated.
