BANKS & CREDIT CARDS
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Where you put your money when you’re not spending it is just as important as responsibly choosing what you spend it on. For your whole life (even while you sleep), that money will either be building a better world or tearing it down. While shopping, make each purchase doubly effective by using a credit card that donates a percentage of your purchases (over $5500/yr for the average American) to saving the planet.
BUYING TIPS

 Try using both a local bank AND an A bank  Find out which credit unions are in your area  Switch to a socially responsible credit card
