How ethical is your bank?

In a moment Mary Poppins but first a campaign is being launched that seeks to encourage individuals, organisations and enterprises to move their money from the major high street banks to more ethical, local and socially useful alternatives including the cooperative bank, building societies and credit unions.  A similar campaign in the US has resulted in over 4 million people switching current or savings accounts in the past 6 months alone.

'Moving money' has the direct impact of strengthening the ‘alternative’ banking sector, but it is also a positive and intelligent way to engage with the banking system. They aim 'to provide the information and confidence to broaden and enhance the public dialogue around what a socially useful and sustainable banking system should look like'.

So now to their video - see what Mary Poppins has to say about building a better banking system. Find out more at http://www.moveyourmoney.org.uk/
