(3BL Media) Burlington, VT – June 19, 2012 – In a joint effort to encourage individuals to reduce their carbon emissions, carbon offset provider NativeEnergy has partnered with Recyclebank®, the company that rewards people for taking everyday green actions. By purchasing carbon offsets, NativeEnergy customers earn Recyclebank Points that can be redeemed for rewards, such as discounts and deals at local and national businesses.
Recyclebank members can also trade in points for a high-value coupon of 20% off NativeEnergy carbon offsets.
“Our customers are people who care deeply about the planet,” said Jeff Bernicke, president of NativeEnergy. “We’re excited to reward them for their dedication and eco-conscious actions. We also hope that this program will encourage more people to make a real difference by helping to finance projects that reduce their carbon emissions.”
Carbon offsets purchased on the NativeEnergy website will help fund two wind turbines on family farms in northern Iowa. The clean energy produced by this project will displace fossil fuel-based energy, cutting an estimated 92,000 metric tons of carbon pollution over the next eight years.
Individuals can immediately start earning Recyclebank Points when they buy carbon offsets on the NativeEnergy website: www.nativeenergy.com. The opportunity to claim these points will appear on the receipt page after purchase. Individuals can then use their points to redeem rewards at Recyclebank.com.
“To make a measurable environmental difference, we need to motivate millions to act in ways that create a more sustainable future,” said Ali C. Mirian, Recyclebank Ecosystem general manager. “Thanks to NativeEnergy, we are expanding our network of eco-conscious brands and consumers working together towards the common good of the planet.”
The Recyclebank Ecosystem is a coalition of like-minded brands and organizations who want to empower their customers and members to live more sustainable lives, with the ultimate goal of making a substantial collective impact on the environment. Through this rewards program, NativeEnergy joins a distinguished group of partners like Barnes Noble, Preserve®, MillionTreesNYC, Earth911, and eBay.
