ECO's October Sustainable Living Workshop on Oct. 22, 2013- Invest Your Money Responsibly and Back Into Our Community!
Invest Your Money Responsibly and Back Into Our Community!
(HENDERSONVILLE, NC)- Have you ever wondered if the financial investments you make through your bank are helping to encourage actual, positive change in the community? What is socially responsible investing and how is it different from giving to a charity? Come find out the answers to these questions and more during ECO’s October Sustainable Living Workshop! ECO, the Environmental and Conservation Organization, will be hosting a discussion on Socially Responsible Money Management from 6:30–8:30pm on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at its new offices at 611 N. Church Street, Suite 101, Hendersonville. Jane Hatley, Western North Carolina Regional Director of Self-Help Credit Union, will discuss societal problems sometimes fostered by our current economic system, and a new paradigm that allows individuals and organizations to use their money management practices to foster positive social impact in their local communities and beyond. Ms. Hatley will discuss specific options in our local community. Registration required, $15 per person. Call ECO at (828) 692-0385 to sign up today.
