I suppose credit is important. I'm generally averse to it on principle, though I have, several times in my life, needed it quite badly. But now, instead of having rewards that get you airline miles you can have a credit card that helps the planet.
One part altruism, one part conscience cleansing, one part badge of honor, the GE Money - Earth Rewards - EcoMagination - Master Card (was that enough brand names or what!) donates to organizations that offset carbon dioxide whenever you spend money.
Their greenhouse gas reduction projects look quite legit, and include methane capture at landfills, renewable energy projects, reforestation and sponsoring efficiency increases. GE is getting excited about the prospect of people offsetting 100% of their carbon with this card. Though, to do that, you'd have to buy $750 worth of stuff with it a month. I'm fairly certain that I spend less than $750 bucks a month, y'know...total.
Though, if I paid EcoGeek's hosting bill with this thing, I that would probably take us a long way toward carbon neutrality.
