I try to question one consumption choice that I make every day. If I can refrain from consuming the chosen item, then I try to offer the money to a person or cause who needs it. If I don't refrain, I at least try to find a way to consume it that causes less suffering and more benefit in the network of interdependence. For instance, take one item of food you eat each day and see if it can be found locally and organically. This daily mindful consumption practice has led to a much greater curiosity into the ethics of companies that I support financially.
