Ethical Banking - greens not guns
Barbed wire or blossoms, which would you choose to see against a blue sky?
I liked both when I took the photo's a few weeks ago, and then I realised they were relevant to my 1st Sew Green post today, Ethical Banking.
It's basically about how your savings can make a real environmental/social difference by being in a bank that supports ethical investments (blossom) rather than being used to fund unethical sh*t like the arms trade (barbed wire).
I hope you'll link in for a read and hopefully it'll be food for thought (but not preachy) about what is happening with your money when it's not being used to buy that incredible can't-believe-no-one-else-has-spotted-this-yet piece of fabric in the charity shop.
Yes, you know where I'm coming from with that experience. You see, you lunge, you look round expecting someone to fight you for it, but then realise they couldn't give two hoots about some old retro rag. You head home with your swag bag feeling like you won the craft lottery.
