I've read a couple threads that mentioned this in passing. So has anyone found ethical mutual funds? I want something that is completely divested from fossil fuels and also from unethical pharmaceutical and chemical companies (which is most of them).

Is it even permitted on here to talk about specific products?

It's not my money, so I don't have the option to invest in land right now, although I'd like to.

How much money do you want to invest?
Why not find young people and partner with them in a permaculture project?

I sure would invest in permaculture if it were my money. As it is, I need to make sure that it takes care of my mother for the rest of her life and leaves an accessible inheritance to my sister.

Decades ago I invested in Green Century Funds and haven't made a dime.  If I had additional money to invest, I would invest it in a "green" business, not in a fund.
