CREDIT CARDS

When you use a mega-bank’s card, you’re bolstering all the things the bank’s loans support, from clearcutting forests to new coal-fired power plants to predatory loans. Community development banks and credit unions provide the best opportunity for cardholders to avoid supporting bad practices and to positively impact communities.  --Fran Teplitz, Green America’s director of social investing programs.

Working Assets/ Credo
CREDO donates 10¢ to nonprofits with every CREDO Visa card purchase — at no cost to you. No annual fee. Triple points for groceries and charitable giving.    

Ten Green Credit Cards
Credit cards from megabanks – Citi, Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo – support predatory lending, coal mining, tar sands, and outrageous CEO salaries. Cutting up that mega-bank credit card is another step to breaking up with your mega bank and starting a healthier relationship with a local community development bank or credit union.
