Is your money ethical? Look to Charity Bank by The Good Shopping Guide | Oct 9, 2017 | Ethical Accreditation, Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments Ethical money The notion of ‘ethical money’ may sound oximoronic at times, but there’s a great deal of truth to the fact that your money has a very real and distinct ethical component. Where you bank, where you spend your money, all of these things have an ethical outcome. As our research has disclosed over a number of years, the choice of where you save your money could mean whether your hard earned personal finance is funding the manufacturing of cluster bombs or climate change. The link is tangible. So what are your options as a consumer? Charity Bank Charity Bank proves that banking can serve a different purpose. Rather than investing in the manufacturing of cluster bombs or fossil fuels, Charity Bank is a savings and loans bank with a mission to use money for good. When you save with Charity Bank, they pay you interest and use your money to make loans to charities and social enterprises. Thus, your savings become part of a positive social mission. They might be used to build affordable homes, launch renewable energy projects or to foster peace among young people in divided communities. For Charity Bank, “what matters to us isn’t profits but a shared idea about the world we want to live in”.
