Celebrate Earth Day: Give Your Car a Rest

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Today is Earth Day, a time to celebrate — and remember to protect — our one, precious planet. But what about the other 364 days of the year? As John Kassel, president of Conservation Law Foundation (EIA’s parent company) reminds us in his Earth Day 2012 blog post, one day is simply not enough:

“The mounting environmental threats we face as a region, and as a nation, cannot be dealt with in a day. They require sustained effort towards a sustainable future. They require every one of us to do our part, every day.

That may sound daunting, but here’s one solution that’s as easy as walking or riding a bike: one of the best things you can do for the environment is to bike more, to walk more, or to take public transportation. This Earth Day, give your car a rest.

So by driving less and biking (or walking, taking the T, carpooling, telecommuting…) more, you can celebrate Earth Day every day!

CLF Ventures gets a makeover!

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

CLF Ventures logoLeaves are falling, autumn has arrived – and so has a new look for CLF Ventures, EIA’s parent company. The mission of CLF Ventures — the non-profit strategy-consulting arm of Conservation Law Foundation — is to bring about positive environmental change through the marketplace. With a new logo and a newly redesigned website, CLF Ventures is taking its message to the next level.

Fourteen years ago, CLF Ventures created the Environmental Insurance Agency after identifying a market for an alternative auto insurance that rewards people for driving fewer miles. EIA’s goal is to help consumers save money while reducing fossil fuel consumption, carbon emissions, and traffic congestion — a win-win for consumers and the environment.
