Going Green with Your Credit Union


When it comes to incorporating eco-friendly practices into your everyday life, you might be surprised just how many parts of your life you can adjust to go green and help Mother Earth. Not surprisingly, going green with your banking is one such area in which you can do so. Banks and credit unions all over the country have started implementing eco-friendly policies and services, such as online e-statements, as well as online and mobile banking. Polam also offers these features, and we encourage our members to take full advantage of their benefits.


If you’re looking for ways to bank green with us at Polam, here are a few tips and ideas:


  • Sign up for e-statements and reduce paper waste.  If you already get a lot of junk mail, you’ll find that Polam’s online e-statements are a relief when it comes to reducing paper and ink waste. Simply sign up for these statements through our online banking portal, and you’ll receive them in your digital inbox rather than the one standing outside your home.


  • Take advantage of online and mobile banking.  When you choose to bank through Polam’s online banking portal or free mobile app, you’re definitely helping reduce paper and ink waste, but you’re also promoting lower fuel consumption and vehicular air pollution. Instead of getting in your car to drive to one of our branches, simply log in via your computer or mobile device and manage your finances from the comfort of your home or workspace. And if you need to deposit a check, don’t worry – our mobile app lets you make deposits with your smartphone’s camera. You can access up to six months of statements through online and mobile banking, and you can download the app at the App Store or Google Play.


  • Give us a call!  Speaking of fuel consumption, if you’re interested in reducing your carbon footprint but still want to take advantage of our top-of-the-line member service, we encourage you to give us a call if you have any questions or needs. Feel free to reach out during business hours, and we’ll be happy to serve you.
