Simply put, it means ‘putting money where your mouth is’ or ‘actions speak louder than words.’

As individuals and consumers we do have a choice and we do have a voice to support a prosperous future. No matter how much or how little money we have, we decide how we spend it. And if we won’t have a future because of climate change we won’t need any money so let’s make a difference today and take climate action by spending our money based on our values.

How can you vote with your wallet?

  1. Donate money to politicians that share your values.
  2. Send your child/ren to a college that pledges to decarbonize.
  3. Purchase clean and green products that support personal and planetary health.
  4. Contribute to ‘Get out the vote’ efforts.
  5. Donate money to charity.
  6. All of the above.
