You're ready to help, but you want recognition for your efforts. There's nothing wrong with that, but don't expect praise right away. Sometimes you need to do things without the promise of a pat on the back. That doesn't mean it won't come, but it might not arrive now.
It's time to be more conscious of your environmental choices. How often do you even think about recycling, turning off lights, or taking shorter showers? Implement some green strategies and watch your karma load lighten.
