Keep your money cruelty free..

Sustainability – the second class citizen

I had to read the article referenced below twice – it didn’t make any sense the first time.  Unfortunately, it really didn’t make any sense the second time of reading either.

The article can be found here

At a time when the vast majority of the world’s population has accepted that Climate Change is happening and that something needs to be done, the policy outlined in the article defies all logic.  Keeping with the theme that will run through much of my Blogs, the problem is that big business, the most influential and best connected business, is able to gets its agenda to the front of the queue every single time.  And where do they get this mandate from to do this?  They get it from their owners, the shareholders, and that is everyone with savings, investments, Superannuation and pensions.  Unless your money is invested in a fund which seeks to maximise profits, but which also operates to a set of social, ethical, environmental and animal welfare values, you will one of the people who are endorsing these activities – it a perverse way you are probably financing and supporting some of the activities and businesses that you are actively campaigning against.  Now, that makes even less sense to me than the article referred to at the beginning of this Blog.

Come one everyone – wake up and take control of your money.  Invest ethically, sustainable and in a way which is cruelty free.  If you don’t take control of your money then someone else will and their values, if they have any, may not agree with yours!
