Socially responsible investing (SRI) is the practice of evaluating investments’ social or environmental impact as well as their traditional financial metrics. By doing so, investors hope to direct their money toward companies with sustainable business practices and, equally as important, away from companies who may commit social or environmental injustices.
My husband and I recently took our two young girls on a family trip to Lake Tahoe, NV. We totally unplugged to enjoy mother nature and teach our children how to love the outdoors as much as we do. Looking across the lake to the trails and mountains beyond, I wasn’t aware that fires were burning all around us. I only realized it once we tried to take our flight home yet was grounded because of poor visibility conditions due to the fires.
