I've put this in Buddhism today because I personally feel we have it within us to be activists without going all militant and aggressive, but moving in small, quiet unobtrusive ways to be proactive...
I am making efforts to cut down on my carbon footprint and effects on my environment.
My focus currently is on Plastics and waste, and here's what I'm doing:
I have purchased or obtained, via inexpensive means, several containers of varying sizes, into which I transfer my commercially-packaged shopping, in order to try to convince the store I'm shopping at, to reduce their own unnecessary packaging, or at least make it completely environmentally safe, biodegradable and compatible. (Next time I do my shopping, I'll take photos!) I use predominantly durable 'tupperware' type containers, but have been known to take a couple of glass jars along too...
I am creating my own wax food wrappers out of 100&%-cotton fabric, beeswax, pine resin and food-compatible mineral oil, in order to ditch clingfilm/saran wrap.
I don't use toilet paper. (I'll only explain if you specifically ask.;) )
I cleanse and nourish my skin using only natural oils, and water.
I'm saving, collecting and gathering plastic bottles (this IS gonna take a while!) to try to create my own mini greenhouse...
Here's the thing (re. my title):
Would anyone here be willing to 'join' me and do the same things I do?
Can we spread the word and collectively try to convince others to do the same, and gather momentum?
What are you doing, constantly, habitually and deliberately, to make your gesture towards conserving the only world we've got?
Will you consider following in my footsteps?
