Bank at a Local Credit Union

When you use a bank account, you typically have money sitting in your checking and savings account. This is the money that is not invested. The bank will use the balances in people’s accounts to invest for their own profit. You want to support a bank that invests in sustainable practices and provides value to society. Most big corporate banks invest money in real estate and extractive businesses like oil, logging, and cheap meat and farming. Open an account and move your banking to a local non-profit credit union. These are not for profit, so their goal is to serve the needs of its members. They also keep the money invested locally, which is better for your local community and economy. Most credit unions have the goal to consider the environment. So, it’s better to use a credit union as your bank.
