Okay, so that title doesn’t REALLY make sense, but hopefully it caught your attention.

Since it is the end of March and getting close to tax day, I’m sure many of us are thinking about IRAs and SEPs and college funds.

This year you might think about investing in a “green” fund. There are several companies out there that have IRAs, mutual funds, money markets, college funds, etc, that invest in companies engaging in sustainable practices.

You have to do your research, just like with any investment, but many of these will give you just as good a return on your money as investing in non-sustainable companies. And these will give you a warm fuzzy feeling with your dividend.

Some companies that have sustainable investment options are:

Green Century Funds

ING

Community Capitol Management
