I for one am sick of supporting the big brands, that have become corrupt and rather than appreciate us for buying their products and services, they
treat us like complete crap and take what they can from us and give us as little as they can get away with in return.
Shopping locally in non-(multi)national chains is a good place to start. And when you do have to go to supermarkets then buying ethically produced
(Fair Trade, environmentally friendly, etc) products means less suffering.
So, what are some viable alternatives to banking? I am trying to find an ethical bank, preferably non-profit making, yet I run into a brick wall.
There is one called Charity Bank but they only offer savings accounts - I need a current account. Does anyone have any ideas?
Any other suggestions to "sticking it to the man" by not buying their products/services would be welcome.
