Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Penn Community Bank was focused on providing contactless banking options, such as e-statements, online and mobile banking, and contactless cards. As we emerge from the pandemic, our contactless and sustainable options remain a priority.
As Earth Day approaches, we want to remind you of some steps you can take has to reduce waste:
Online and mobile banking: It’s the easiest (and greenest) way to manage your finances. Utilizing online banking not only saves you time and money from having to travel to a branch, it cuts down on emissions. When you bank online, you eliminate the physical receipts, statements, and other documents that would eventually head to the landfill.
Switch to e-statements: If you haven’t already, it’s time to make the switch to e-statements on your account. It’s easy, too: simply log on to your account and select the paperless option. This seemingly small task will help reduce your individual waste in the long-run and save on paper, postage, and delivery costs… and who doesn’t want one less piece of mail to go through!
Mobile check deposit: Skip the trip to the bank and deposit your check with the mobile check deposit feature on the Penn Community Bank app. Even better – skip the physical check all together and make sure you’re set up with direct deposit with your employer.
Consider a loan or line of credit to make green home improvements: Perhaps you want to make some eco-friendly improvements to your home, like installing solar roof panels or switching to an energy efficient HVAC system. Home improvements are expensive, and sometimes choosing the “greener” option may cost even more upfront. If you’re looking for help with financing these projects, visit PennCommunityBank.com to help make your sustainable dream home a reality.
This Earth Day, just by adopting one or two of these green financial practices, you are doing your part to save the planet.
