1. Your mortgage could be supporting industries that harm people and the planet
Have you asked your bank what industries they lend to and invest in? If the answer includes fossil fuels, weapons, tobacco or gambling, it is likely that the interest you are paying on your mortgage is supporting these industries. To find out how much your bank invests in fossil fuels check out Market Forces’ comparison table.
