Included:  Resources for banking with community development banks and credit unions, and putting ALL your investments to work for the planet

The kit answers questions most frequently asked by consumers who are trying to close their accounts at mega-banks and support community development financial institutions instead.  In addition, it helps consumers use all their financial accounts and investments – from credit cards to mutual funds – to support a green economy.

"From Occupy Wall Street to Bank Transfer Day, there is mounting frustration and anger at the big banks that are failing to act in the interests of our communities and our nation as a whole," says Green America Social Investing Director Fran Teplitz.  "As a result, more and more consumers are looking for ways to invest their money with institutions that are responsible and promote sustainability."

Since 2001, Green America has encouraged consumers to invest money in community investing institutions that invest in marginalized communities in the U.S. and abroad.  Assets invested in those institutions grew from $7.6 billion to $41.7 billion over the past decade.

To help all consumers invest their money in a way that supports a green economy, Green America offers the following resources:
