How to make a difference in the world, one dollar at a time

14th February 2022

Did you know that you can begin to make a difference in the world with as little as one dollar?

We live in a time of human rights abuse, animal cruelty, genetically modified foods, climate change, and environmental destruction due to industrialization. These issues can seem beyond our control, but we can make a difference and effect positive change every time we use money.

There is a saying, "Use your money to vote for the type of world you want to create." In essence, it suggests that every dollar you spend or invest with a company is a decision to support that company.

Being intentional with your spending, saving, and investing decisions is about aligning your money to flow to those companies that match your values, hopes, and desires for the type of world you want to live in and create for the future. By choosing to do business with companies attempting to make the world a better place, you can do your part to make the world a better place.

Companies need our money to stay in business – money talks, and every dollar matters.

By avoiding companies with a negative track record, we can send a strong message for change and support the practices that make our world a better place to live in.

Just as you might align your values with your everyday spending and choose to shop organic, fair-trade, spray-free, or eco, you can try to use this same principle for your financial transactions.

You might choose to bank with an institution that aligns with your value set. Spend only in shops that align with your ethical preferences. And save money with an organization that supports conscious investing and a positive environmental footprint.
