Aspiration is my personal bank of choice, as it fits my values. Every swipe of my card a tree is planted and they offer carbon offsets. Not like I buy gas riding a bicycle everywhere to stay green, but it’s nice to offset other peoples carbon emissions at least.

Managed portfolio’s

Aspiration offers a managed Redwood fund. It doesn’t do to bad, as of the time of this writing, it is at 17.23 a share, last year in August, it was at 13.04. So not terrible gains. Very low risk savings account basically.

Plant your change

These guys offer a plant your change feature. Which takes the extra change from your purchases, and plants trees with it. So if you spend 1.80 they take 20 cents and it goes to planting tree’s with their partner company. Plant enough trees and they pay out rewards!

The only downside I’ve had with them is that I can’t deposit cash or checks at an ATM because they are an online only bank. Beyond that though, they offer all the features I need and it’s just a must for those who want to help work towards a greener future.

The referral program works like this, you make the account and spend 250$ in your first month, we both get 50$ put into our account.

Join Aspiration and help the world be a better place.
