TD Bank, and other neighborhood banks, are going green

Banks have always been well known for being green, if by green, we mean having a lot of money. But people who are concerned about the environment might be happy to know that banks are starting to get their environmental acts together as well and are starting to think green.

I caught up with Frank Sherman, TD Bank's U.S. Green Officer, after reading that the institution was in the midst of building a "green" bank, the first of many the bank plans to build. The bank will be located in New York City, in Queens, to be exact, and will be carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly. We're talking solar panels, insulated glass with a low E-coating and more.

I thought TD Bank was one of the first banks to go green, but Sherman was refreshingly honest when I asked him about that.
