  1. Well done everyone! Do you know that you don’t have to bank with Barclays to be contributing to its environmental damage? If you are a UK tax payer, you pay your tax to HMRC and guess where they put your money?? Yes, straight into a Barclays account, so desperately need to press the government to make HMRC uses a different, non-fossil fuel supporting bank! (Or perhaps, if we pay the tax ourselves, rather than via an employer, we should refuse to pay)
