Where’s Your Money? (COOL Lent: 2008)

5 Minutes of Caring: Where’s Your Money?

The question being asked today is a great one. Where is your bank investing your savings and checking balance while you aren’t using it?

We have made a conscious effort to make sure our retirement investing is done with green(er) and humanitarian companies that engage in fair(er) trade. I add the (er)s to green and fair because it is virtually impossible to qualify companies exclusively in these categories even when they advertise themselves as such. Yet, many companies are making efforts in these areas.

I have an email into the bank where we keep our checking account to find out where they are investing – this should be interesting… (I’ll post an update when I hear back.)
