Green your financial transactions...

Here are a few tips for greening your weekly financial transactions:

Put your money in the community credit union
. I quote the Better World Handbook, "Instead of putting your money in large corporate banks, whose overall impact is hard to determine, deposit your money in locally owned banks that have a strong commitment to contributing to their community."

Sign up for online bill pay through your bank.

If you're going to be more than 30 seconds, Turn off your engine at the teller/drive-through. You'll save gas AND won't emit those nasty pollutants.

Write a letter or call your bank to request a voluntary no-idling policy.

Consolidate your trips

With Betty's help, Sign up for no junk mail.

Decline the receipt when banking at ATMs.
