El Monte RV Featured Partner in AAA’s Alternative Fuels Awareness Initiative

El Monte RV Earns Green Rating by Auto Club with TerraPass Carbon Offset Option for RV Rentals

LOS ANGELES, Calif. July 14, 2009 — To recognize its promotion of a voluntary carbon offset program, El Monte RV will be a featured AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah (AAA NCNU) Greenlight partner during the Auto Club’s annual Alternative Fuels Awareness Month in November.

The month-long initiative highlights the efforts of AAA Show Your Card & Save (SYCS) partners to promote alternative fuels and environmentally sound fuel consumption practices to their clients.

El Monte RV offers RV rental customers the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets. A carbon offset represents the reduction of one metric ton of carbon dioxide emissions, a principal cause of global warming. El Monte RV works with TerraPass to purchase these carbon offsets. The reduction occurs as TerraPass uses the proceeds of carbon offset sales to fund carbon emissions reduction projects such as wind farms, methane gas reduction and others.

The Economy is Down, Camping is UP!

More and more people are rediscovering the fun, camaraderie, and joy that family camping delivers. The most amazing thing of all is that people are now realizing how inexpensive travel in a rented rv can be. We saw this article about people clamouring for campsites in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat and thought it told the story about the benefits and relatively low cost of rv rentals and camping very well: http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20090422/ARTICLES/904219935

We’ve also noticed an increase in families renting motorhomes for family reunions. What better way to reunite with family and friends?
