Environmental Investments

Guest Author - Terri Paajanen

It's important that everyone do their part to help the environment, by recycling and reducing waste, and lowering consumption of fossil fuel produced energy. But you can help on a larger scale by supporting businesses that are ecologically friendly. There are a number of 'green' mutual funds on the financial market today that lets you invest in these businesses. Be aware that most of these are American companies and may only be able to sell shares to people living in the USA.

New Alternatives Fund
An excellent way to support the field of renewable energy. The New Alternatives Fund invests in companies that produce materials or technology used in the field of renewable energy. To a lesser extent, they also invest in companies involved in natural foods, water conservation and recycling.
