Penelope Swales


Penelope Swales is a singer, songwriter and instrument maker who is loved across Australia and around the world. She combines beautiful music, a wicked sense of humour and a social conscience, and is in demand as a speaker as well as a musician.

Penelope has already taken the step of divesting and writing to her old bank, the Commonwealth bank, to tell them why.

I divested because I hated the thought that I was helping finance climate change every time I paid my mortgage. I have native bush, an organic veggie garden and an orchard and buy 100% green power. It seemed to undermine it all for my home to be financed by a fossil bank. Even better, refinancing has given me the opportunity to remove asbestos and put in solar hot water.
