As the world turns increasingly green so, too, do credit unions. One way CUs can show their true green color is by supporting their members' efforts to go green as well. This means offering lending products that encourage a greener lifestyle -- permitting economical financing of energy-efficient homes, hybrid cars -- even motor scooters. Many green lending products have a two-fold advantage: They are beneficial to the environment, and they also help members save money. In addition to offering green lending products, CUs can support the green movement by adding environmentally friendly business practices. Green practices that support green lending products make sure what a CU is doing is a matter of "walking the walk" and not just "talking the talk. Community First CU of Florida explicitly shows its commitment to saving the environment. Specifically, the credit union opened its first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified retail branch in 2008.
