Reduce ones environmental impact, eliminaty poverty, reduce green house gases-emission and global warming

I think it is about to put our best effort to spread love and compassion in all our actions. Judging or attacking doens't help anyone. Kind, loving and explanatory posts do help. We can and should help people how to make loving and compassionate choices - e.g. about palm oil - without attacking anyone. [This is a very helpful book: http://www.worldpeacediet.com/ ; and YouTube-channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6Qgb5R4-s4 ]
Me and my wife don't use any hygiene products - just water. It works well. We started last October.
One can Google on "no poo" to find some other people's experiences (articles of different quality and many are giving bad advice too). The hair may become a bit greasy for a while during the restoration-process. After this, the hair stops being greasy.
It takes some time for the body and the hair to adapt, to get restored from being destroyed by all destructive chemicals in the products that one buys (I know there are also a few organic, natural products that are good for ones body).
This has much less environmental impact, and thus reduces harm, suffering and death to the animals. It is also very cheap.
We don't use any products with palm oil.
We have also cut down heavily on the electricity we use - we don't have any radiator (we live in an apartment and it comes some (not much) heat from the hallway of the building), no refrigerator, no toilet paper (our society may thinks it is gross, but water works just fine), no TV, etc.
We buy only organic food (stared recently) now to minimize the harm we do to nature. We plan to become totally self-sustained and live off-the-grid, and have our on veganic, organic garden; and also to sell some of our produce and to start a vegan café.
Here is an example of a family who are completely self-sustained on only 1/10 of an acre of land:
A trailer about the movie 'No Impact man' gave me some good inspiration for good changes to make: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgLzKDKOCEw (movie may contain many bad advice also, but I trust everyone is critical)

The most important advice to work against eliminating poverty and starvation is to go vegan. More about environmental impact of animal products is find here:

Shouldn't vegan not only be about that a product doesn't contain animal products, but also that it doesn't contain chemicals harming the environment and thus the animals?
And if we don't need a product altogether that has a bad environmental impact - how can we justify using it?

Realizing the damage e.g. hygiene products with chemicals has to the environment and thus other beings, and that their are alternatives causing no harm (e.g. using only water, see my post above) ---
how could one continue something that is causing other beings unnecessary pain and death.
We should strive to that all our actions are reflecting non-violence, love and compassion to all beings.

Most of us agree on that it is morally wrong to hurt other beings and that we should do our best to minimize the pain and suffering for all living beings. This is the most essential thing.

I link it to veganism based on the following.
"1960 H. Jay Dinshah started the American Vegan Society, linking veganism to the Jain concept of ahimsa, the avoidance of violence against living things.[3]"

"Ahimsa means kindness and non-violence towards all living things including animals; it respects living beings as a unity, the belief that all living things are connected. Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi strongly believed in this principle.[3] Avoidance of verbal and physical violence is also a part of this principle.."

The action of putting chemicals bad for the environment in the nature, e.g. by using hygiene products with such a chemicals, is not demonstrating kindness to all living beings.
