Today, the Rainforest Action Network and its partners are conducting a campaign against JP Morgan Chase which is financing mountaintop removal coal mining. I canceled the card and cut it up. Here’s my letter to them:
Please cancel my Chase card. I am not going to do business with any company that is financing mountain top removal coal mining. I have averaged about $2,500 in charges per statement over the last year and I have been a Chase cardholder since 2005. I have the greatest respect for the Rainforest Action Network. If they tell me to cancel my Chase card, I m canceling it! I need to find a more socially responsible financial institution.
