A long distance phone company
, veterans of California
but new to the Midwest
They boast progressive environmentalism
in various forms, including the following interesting features
Phone bills made from recycled paper
Phone cards made from recycled plastic
Free phone calls to government officials who they consider relevant to various current progressive issues
A percentage of your bill donated to progressive organizations (Amnesty International, Earth First and such things)
And if you "round up" your bill, they will donate that extra money too.
I don't know about anybody else, but until these guys landed junk mail in my mailbox, I had no idea that a phone company anywhere had interests running this way. I signed up, but admittedly for selfish reasons, as their rates were slightly cheaper than Sprint's.
Oh, and the current promotion has something to do with getting a free pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream for a year. (Read: "Free ten pounds on your ass"; a strange thing to offer people you'd like as customers!)
