- Write an e-mail to your representatives urging them to make environmentally-conscious decisions
- Donate money to a worthy cause that helps farmers grow organically, or cleans up the oceans
- Go to http://www.therainforestsite.com/ and (for free!) save a little bit of the rainforest
- If you invest, look into putting "green stocks" in your portfolio
- Make eco-changes with a child, and talk about why you're doing it
- Investigate ways to make changes at your workplace--here in NYC, I know of at least one law firm that has gone completely paper free. Perhaps your company doesn't need to be so drastic, but at least try make sure they're recycling and not using styrofoam cups!
- For you churchy folk, think about your coffee hour: styrofoam cups? Disposable everything? Financially it's tight, I know, but what message are you sending about being stewards of God's creation?
Have more suggestions? Share them! Have good/bad greening experiences? By all means, send them on, Eco-Warriors! With any luck, my future great-grandkids will wonder why we had to fight at all.
Hm, on second thought, that'd be nice for civil rights and women's lib, too.Sphere: Related Content
