Green Your Finances: Mutual Funds

Green mutual funds It's tax week and we've all got our money on our minds, so it's the perfect time to consider how the cash we've put so much energy into earning will work to preserve our planet. This week's tips will help you green your finances.

Tip #1: Invest in Green Mutual Funds

You have to sock cash away for retirement, so why not reap returns ethically by putting faith in the burgeoning green economy and placing your money in what's becoming one of the biggest growth sectors in recent history? Green mutual funds, like those offered by Winslow and Calvert, invest in corporations -- like clean-energy companies or organizations that operate in environmentally responsible ways -- that are committed to creating a sustainable world.

Tip #2: Charity

Tip #3: Real Estate

Tip #4: Go Paperless
