With Corportations, the government, the world and consumers buying more and more ‘Green Products and Services’ the Green Market has to increase.

Investing For The Soul “Investors desiring a better world, concerned about ethics, or their spiritual development, the environment, and so on, must incorporate related values in their investing decisions. The reason for this is that when we invest in a company, (or many companies such as in a mutual fund, unit trust, ETF, etc.), we share in the responsibility for the activities of those companies as well asparticipate in the outcomes of their corporate actions.”
