Tags for Miles
As household movers who travel thousands of miles and burn thousands of gallons of fuel a year, we know our business has “hidden” environmental costs — we contribute to pollution and climate change but don’t directly pay for the damage we do. Doesn’t seem quite fair.
So what do we do about it? We considerably reduce our emissions by fueling our trucks with 100% biodiesel made from waste vegetable oil from Iowa City area restaurants. In other words, the grease your fries were cooked in at Oasis or the Hamburg Inn may have helped fuel your move across town, and helped the planet breathe a little bit easier.
But we wanted to do more. In an attempt to further reduce our environmental impact, we’ve implemented a carbon off-set program called Tags for Miles. Offered in partnership with the Winneshiek Energy District, the Tags for Miles program gives you the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets (or Oneota Tags) to reduce the environmental impact of your move. This is the first entirely local carbon offset program in our state; by purchasing Oneota Tags, you’ll help fund home energy efficiency projects in the Decorah area, thereby offsetting the carbon emissions from your move. And to help encourage you, we’ll match you tag for tag: for every tag you purchase (equal to one ton of carbon), we’ll purchase an additional tag. We’re really excited about the program, and we hope you will be too!
Please let us know you’re interested in participating at least one-week prior to your move date and we’ll make the necessary arrangements.
