Ethical Advertising For Ethical Funds

Did you know that most mutual funds go towards supporting some of the most horrific elements of human nature? Child labour and sweatshops in third world countries, Big Tobacco that pushes poison on teenage girls and companies that make bombs and guns to kill innocent people could all be funded by the mutual funds you invest in everyday. Indirectly, millions of North Americans are supporting the breakdown of the Earth through mining or forestry, and stand ignorantly behind Big Oil companies as they pillage the last of a limited resource. Do you realize that your money could be supporting warlords, and promoting genocide overseas? Do you realize that your CPP is invested in these kind of funds? Open your eyes to what is going on around you and ask yourself, “What are my investments up to?”
