2. Cycling
Why do so many people feel it necessary to acquire cars in the many parts of the affluent world where there are good public transport systems? Even though the public transport networks are good in these regions, they could be so much better were it not for the congestion caused by far too many cars on the road!

Bike it for a better world

3. Don't shop at Supermarkets
On the 3rd November 2005 TV News programmes in the UK reported that several dairy farmers were pouring their milk down the drain in protest at the low prices they were being paid by supermarkets for their produce. This was just one of many protests against the tyrannical manner in which large supermarkets are driving farmers to bankruptcy and putting local high street shops out of business, reducing the nutritional quality of food and imposing degrading working practices and poor pay on staff.

Supermarkets

4. Ethical investment
When you invest your money in stocks and shares, a bank, building society or other investment body do you stop to consider how the money is then used? Is it then reinvested to manufacture tobacco or alcohol, arms or torture equipment, experimentation on animals, destruction of tropical forests, or other activities which not accord with your values or principles? Or are you just interested in the interest you gain on your investment?
