Sometimes you can do small changes that fit your values. I worked for an aquarium that had different conservation ideas than I did. Styrofoam recycling is a big soap box of mine. It is 100% recyclable and should not end up in landfills. It is used a lot in aquariums and veterinary areas. The organisation wouldn't include it in their green program but my boss would let me collect Styrofoam containers and if needed store in our locket room until I could transport to the recycling center (sometimes it took me two truck loads to get it all there). Soon people asked me about bringing in their Omaha meat coolers. Administrative personnel began to notice and ask about the different types of Styrofoam. I did this for four years. One year after I left my boss let me know Styrofoam recycling is now part of the company's green program. That would have never happened of I had just quit or kept quiet.
