Summertime in New York City. It’s one of the best times of the year to enjoy the city. From Shakespeare in the Park to outdoor festivals on Governors Island, and live concerts in Prospect Park, free events in every borough. Whether you love or hate the high temperatures, one thing most ofus New Yorkers can appreciate is that the city is alive with endless shades of green popping up in every plaza and park. And green is our favorite hue.

Just a few months ago we announced that we’d gone carbon neutral. As part of our commitment to ethical banking and our triple bottom line as a B Corp bank, we offset over 192,874.28 kg of CO2e, which helps to preserve a part of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. We know this is just one small but important step in our contribution to creating a healthier planet for generations to come.

We invite you to join us in this effort in a very easy way! Minimize your environmental footprint by using our Green Checking account. It’s our completely paperless personal checking account with zero maintenance fee options and no overdraft fees. All you need is an email address, and your monthly statements are sent to you electronically. When you access your Green Checking account through the Spring Bank mobile app, you have 24/7 access to your money without printing, or recycling statements ever again.

The Spring Bank Green Checking account is good for your wallet and good for the planet. We’d say that’s a win-win. Open a Green Checking account today, just in time for Climate Week NYC 2019, September 23-29.  Learn about our journey to carbon neutral and what it means to be an ethical bank.
