Is there any actions you want to take to create a more green environment around you?

What is the biggest threat to the Earth’s wellbeing these days?
Waste, in all it’s forms, it being material and human resources.

Whom are you going to tag in the green meme?
Huum… Lilian Lehman (I think she cares about this stuff) and David Rodrigues (he’s left wing enough to care :p).
