Hear what led us to choose our financial partner

Ultimately, we chose Bank of the West, who are also part of the 1% for the Planet community like us.

We spoke with Means & Matters, Bank of the West’s online platform for conscientious consumers and business leaders interested in the intersection of money and sustainability, about our motives for changing banks and choosing them.
