There are quite a lot of alternative banking solutions. Have a look at Triodos Bank, for example. Your money is going to be invested in environmental and organic businesses, social entreprises, microfinance, culture and ethical businesses. Does it sound good? Well, it is true. Their motto is “We only lend your money to people and businesses that work to make the world a better place.”
What does this mean for you? You get your account, your online banking, your maestro- and credit card. You can save, spend and move as much money as you want. The only thing that changes is that you are helping social businesses at the same time. Triodos exists in The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, the UK and Belgium. But I am sure there is also an alternative bank in your country.
