June 20, 2024

Introduction

Why settle for ordinary roadside assistance when you can get something better? Better World Club designs better roadside solutions to match your on-the-move lifestyle. They offer 100% carbon neutral emergency roadside assistance for cars, bicycles, and e-bikes across the USA and Canada. Plus, they partner with insurance groups to offer auto, home, and travel insurance.

In this blog, we’ll dive into everything you need to know about Better World Club: their founding story, their sustainability initiatives, and why they’re a better alternative to traditional roadside assistance. 

About Better World Club

Better World Club (BWC) was established in 2002 by longtime friends Mitch Rofsky and Todd Silberman, two visionary entrepreneurs with a passion for environmental conservation and social justice. At the time, many environmentalists were reporting that AAA used anti-environmental lobbying practices.

Frustrated by the lack of eco-friendly alternatives in the industry, they saw an opportunity to create a company that not only provided essential services to motorists but also championed sustainability.

At its core, Better World Club offers roadside assistance services similar to other providers, including towing, lockout assistance, tire changes, and more. However, what sets them apart is their commitment to environmental responsibility.
