I came across a new site recently that I think has a great concept going - it's called EcoUnit.
The idea is that you, as an eco-minded consumer, agree to take market research surveys a few times per month in exchange for EcoUnits that can be exchanged for carbon offsets.
Companies pay Ecounit to get access to their list of consumers, but I think it's great for two reasons:
- It provides a quick, fun way to earn some carbon offsets (I took the first survey, it was painless)
- The companies that are paying for your input are obviously interested in improving their sustainability practices and appealing to the growing green demand. Why not help guide them to do it right instead of greenwashing?
I'm thinking about trying to work with them in the future to give Huddlers EcoUnits for participation here...what do people think about that?
