Save the Planet and Win Launches Green Partner Program

New Program Gives Eco-Minded Companies Unique Opportunities to Reach Green Consumers, Spread Environmental Awareness, and Reduce Their Customers' Carbon Footprint

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2009) - Save the Planet and Win, an environmental social network that encourages everyone to lower their carbon footprint in an online community of like-minded members, is giving green companies a great way to spread environmental awareness and help neutralize their customers' carbon footprints. The new Save the Planet Partner Program is a collective effort to counter global warming through mass collaboration and carbon awareness.

Save the Planet partners request free AddOffset cards to hand out to customers at their establishment, or send along with their products and services through the mail. Card recipients simply visit the Save the Planet and Win website; enter the redemption code on the card, and Save the Planet and Win offsets 19.6 cubic feet of carbon -- equivalent to one gallon of gas. The partner company's logo and a short message brands the offset and tells the customer who helped offset that carbon.

"By offering our AddOffset cards or other products, companies help their customers realize and neutralize some of the carbon they put in the air," said Luis Prestamo, COO of Save the Planet and Win. "It's an effective way to encourage consumers to monitor their personal greenhouse emissions -- as well as demonstrate your brand's commitment to the environment and sustainability."

AddOffset cards come with a perforated box that easily turns into a point of presence (POP) for a counter or other retail display. All cards and packaging are made from 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly water ink. And Save the Planet and Win not only pays for shipping, but also neutralizes the carbon produced in shipping -- offering a truly carbon-neutral promotion for a healthier planet.

In addition to AddOffset cards, Save the Planet and Win offers green publicity and sponsorship opportunities for socially and environmentally responsible businesses. Sponsors advertise in Save the Planet's "Click Green and Win" promotions where members watch a short sponsor message in order to accumulate points that can be redeemed for cash or contributions to green projects. "Click Green and Win" offers 100% sustainable, interactive and green publicity, targeting a community interested in green products and services.

Save the Planet and Win is the first Voluntary Personal Carbon Registry (VPCR) in the United States. Members have carbon accounts where they calculate, monitor, and reduce their footprint through free green and social marketing promotions. And Save the Planet and Win's Carbon Collective lets friends, family, and co-workers join up and track the total carbon reductions achieved by their group. Members share their green accomplishments, chat about the issues, and share sustainable solutions within the community.
