Vegetarianism – In Buddhism, Compassion is practiced as reciprocity to all living beings. So we practice vegetarianism whenever possible.
Environment – We are connected and dependent on our environment. We should take good care of it, and not abuse or exploit it. If we have to chop down a tree which is too close to the house, then we can plant a couple more away from the house.
Gratitude – Buddhists do the 5 contemplations at the meal time. We should always cherish whatever we have at present, and be grateful to all who made this possible.
