Mindful Cell & Landline Phone Bill: Working Assets (now ‘Credo’).

Via on Sep 2, 2008

My best friend Dave and I have this argument. He has a fancy Treo. I’ve got your regular ol’cell phone. He sends his $$$ to Verizon. I send my money…to Working Assets, now Credo, a Canadian Co that sends you coupons for free Ben & Jerry’s, and 1% of your monthly bill to wonderful causes of your choosing. Dave says ‘Only support a company if it does its basic job well, first.’ I say, ‘Give the little man a chance to catch up.” But I still want an iPhone.
