101 ethical things to do before you die

If you know of a way to help save our planet, even just a small part of it put it here. Also if you want to ask how to help, or even if you want to promote your environmental organisation. All goes here.

101 ethical things to do before you die

Not sure if this is the right place to put this but I just recentley picked up a book i bought for my brother a few years ago called 101 things to do before you die and quite frankly the ideas were mostly pretty silly and some of them down right unethical. A taster includes:
Visit every country in the world,
Get arrested,
Get barred from a pub,
Experience weightlessness,
etc etc etc,

So anyhow I go thinking about an alternative list of 101 ethical things to do before you die.
I'll start:

1. Get an allotment/garden and grow veg.

2 Make jam from foraged fruit
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Go on a conservation holiday. I haven't yet, but my friend is going dry stone-walling next year which sounds pretty cool!

Brilliant ideas so far. Hmmm not sure burning a politician could be considered ethical, even after several glass of wine!

14.Give to a charity. (money or time)

15 - volunteer!

16 - plant a tree

17 - teach some one a skill you have ( eg knitting, sewing, wood working.)

18 - dance naked in the rain

19 - stop buying cheap imports.

20 - go and have a cuppa with your neighbours ( difficult but worth the effort! and surprising how nicer it makes them)

21- do a random act of kindness every day! smiles are infectious and hugs dont cost a thing.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
