We do it slowly. 

We do it by waking up to the fact that without realizing it we are indoctrinated into the "use and dispose" culture. I remember the 1st time I heard "planned obsolescence".  I thought it ridiculous then but most people around me nodded in recognition that this was how things "today" worked.  I miss craftsmanship; the process of creating that which is useful and beautiful and long lived.

We do it by waking up to the fact that without realizing it we have been indoctrinated to eat "processed" (non)food instead of real food.  Process food is/was considered "progress", an innovation, somehow better.  We do it by changing this notion and returning to real food and the ability to cook it ourselves.

We do it by waking up to the fact that we are connected to the rest of life on this planet and that we can't live on this planet as if we had another one to go to.
