Share Your Green Epiphany

Some people have been raised from birth to care about nature and think in terms of environmental impact and conservation, but I suspect that for most of us the green epiphany - the moment when we changed our way of seeing things - happened later in life. For some it is one specific event, for others it is a multitude of small eye-openers that progressively changed their attitude and educated them. Some were mainly influenced by people, some by first-hand experience. Please, share your green epiphany with us in the comments section. It doesn't matter if you've been a greenie for 30 years or if you started paying attention last month because of An Inconvenient Truth, we want to know your story!
