What you could do
Know some lingo! Learning a few words of the local language is a great way to break barriers and greet people who you come across.

Water: pollution & usage
If it is necessary to wash in rivers, do not use detergents or other chemicals. There are a number of eco-friendly soaps available for travelers. Remember, it may be someone's drinking water further downstream.
Souvenirs & shopping
Buying local souvenirs helps the local economy; whilst it is often customary and even fun to haggle, stop once you have got a reasonable price: the low price you achieve may only be due to the desperation and poverty of others.
To state the obvious, the world is full of it and you don't want to add to it yourself! Beyond that, however, it's up to you to decide how strongly you should feel about other people's litter: many walkers, for example, are happy to pick up litter along the trail. It's your call. Remember, however - many countries do not have adequate litter collection, never mind recycling or waste reduction schemes; so the less you create, the better.
