Become a Banking Locavore

I recently read a great article on green.indy.com about people who are locavores in the Indianapolis area. A locavore is someone who eats locally produced food as much as possible. According to the article, foods that are grown locally and travel fewer miles can be safer, fresher, and healthier for you.

Apply this thinking to who you're choosing as your banking services provider. A local credit union has employees and members just like you who work cooperatively to deliver financial services with preferable rates and less fees than bigger banks. Decisions regarding your money are made locally, and your institution is committed to serving the community in which you live.

When deciding who your next bank should be, consider an Indianapolis Credit Union
