Volunteer for your community by organizing cleanups or by taking a walk and picking up litter. Encourage by example by getting everyone you know involved with keeping your town clean. Teach your children to take care of the environment. Buy reusable products and of course reduce, reuse and recycle all that you can. By taking care of the environment you'll be taking care of your health as well!
