I'd really love to hear some little (or not so little) ways GTers have found to live a little more ethically/sustainably/compassionately/etc. Pretty much anything goes—giving up meat, taking public transit instead of driving, supporting cruelty-free manufacturers, sending monthly donations to Planned Parenthood, really anything you do in your everyday life to help the make the world a tiny bit better.
