Today is “Bank Transfer Day.” There are a lot of reasons to join the 650,000 people who switched from a big corporate bank to a credit union last month, and one of them we’ve written about for years is to help stop mountaintop removal coal mining. While some banks have cut some of their involvement in mountaintop removal coal mining, it wasn’t until there was a huge citizen push for them to do so (and some are still helping to fund it). Do you want your money in a bank like that?
Joining the growing number of people who are saving their money in a more responsible (and more financially sensible) way today. And if you do so, go ahead and add your info at MoveOn.org’s Move Your Money page so that we can send a clear message to big banks and Wall Street that we’re fed up with their unhelpful practices.
