conscious living

does your bank support or hurt the environment?

Many of the largest banks donate billions of dollars to the fossil fuel industry each year. The top four banks (JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America & Wells Fargo) contributed over $200 billion to the fossil fuel industry in 2019. And in total, 35 of the world’s largest banks have donated an astounding $2.7 trillion into gas and oil firms.

Unfortunately, many of us are unaware of this and unknowingly contribute to the fossil fuel industry by continually making deposits into these banks. Thankfully, some banks put the environment first.
