The Permaculture Credit Union pools the financial resources of people who believe in the ethics of Permaculture – care of the earth, care of people, and reinvestment of surplus for the betterment of both. We apply those resources to earth-friendly and socially responsible loans and investments.
The history of financial institutions is one of focus on the bottom line which results in overexploitation of the earth’s resources.
