Switch to a "green" bank with Sarah

After being surprised by how easy and fast switching accounts to GLS Bank ("green" bank) can be during my Footprint story, I wanted to share this experience with as many people as possible to expand my impact. In addition to many positive experiences, the secondary effort was very high to find all the important information for switching banks. To relieve other people of this work, I designed a flyer for my handprint story with the following content:

  1. Why you should switch to GLS Bank.

  2. How does an account switch work (a step-by-step guide).

  3. Tips

  4. Make an even more sustainable impact with a membership

I sent this flyer digitally to friends and acquaintances with the note that they can contact me at any time if they have questions. I received a lot of positive feedback. As a result, four of my friends switched to GLS Bank. My parents and my sister would like to switch soon. Many of my contacts wrote to me that they had not yet found out about sustainable banks and, inspired by my flyer, were now thinking about switching.

Additionally, I contacted Rebecca, who uploaded "Stories" during her handprint story on Instagram to encourage climate-friendly actions. In one video, I answered questions about my bank switch. We then posted the video on Rebecca's Instagram page and also sent it to my contacts.

I had really enjoyed the design of the flyer and was amazed at how well I was able to use it to attract people to a topic. In the future, I would like to design a flyer and send it out for other sustainability topics that inspire me.

In the download below (german), you'll find Sarah's flyer with the bundled information about switching accounts. Feel free to take a look and spread the word!
