Survey says: TerraPass customers (still) really do care

For the second year running we asked TerraPass customers to tell us a little more about themselves and what else they do to reduce their environmental impact.

The real news here is that little has changed since our first TerraPass customer survey one year ago (for the stats-inclined among you, there was no statistically significant variation): TerraPass customers continue to be a green-minded group who do plenty to help the environment in addition to purchasing offsets. “Indulgence myth still dead” might be an appropriate headline for this post.

Once again we’ve laid out the major points from the survey in a one-page pdf. But I’ll list a few of the highlights here:

* 27% bike commute to work (60 times the national average).
* Of course, not everybody can walk or bike to work. Among the drivers, 19% of TerraPass members own a hybrid car (less than 1% of total US cars are hybrids).
* At home, 73% have installed CFLs.
* A stunning 7% report having installed solar panels (compare that to 0.1% of California homes).

And, appropriately for an election year, the number of you claiming to have contacted a government representative about climate change amazes us — 47%. Here we have further proof that our customers are an active, engaged group that use TerraPass energy-saving products and carbon offsets as part of a broad array of actions for the environment.

Take the first step.

Start small. Be conscious of the impact your actions have on the environment and figure out what you can do to lessen the blow. Calculate, conserve, and offset.
