Start small. Stay with the non-threatening. You can't go from what Paul likes to call "eco level 1" to "eco level 10" with just a conversation. No matter how passionate and convinced you are, people need to follow their own path to choosing to live a lighter footprint. Help them see little ways they can choose differently. Listen to them. Find a tiny chink in their lifestyle where you can make an inroad.
I know you'd like people to "get it" and get it now! It's just not realistic, and I think it will take gradual, repeated efforts to shift the cultural mindset. Bouillon cubes are not the path to lowering our carbon footprint, but finding ways to connect, learn, share and make changes, is.
