SRI? I donít know either.

Have you heard of SRI?

No.

Socially Responsible Investing.

What could it be?

A type of smart investment.

On the long term.

What might Socially Responsible Investing entail?

Helping your neighbor, your community.

Is it important for companies to clean up their act?

Yes.

Do you guys save up?

Sure! Everybody does, I hope.

If I said you could invest while having a positive impact on peopleís lives or on the environment, would you be interested?

Very!

The allocation would be more adequate.

I think it would benefit everybody.

Bottom line, it means making money all the same, but with a clear conscience.

A stronger community means a better investment.

So youíre on board for SRI?
