    The Sims 3 Environmentalism Moodlets

    In "The Sims 3: Ambitions," Sims can have the Eco-Friendly trait that makes them want to be environmentally friendly. The Sims that live an eco-friendly lifestyle are also rewarded with lifetime happiness points for doing so. All of the environmentalism moodlets in "The Sims 3" do require you to have "The Sims 3: Ambitions" expansion pack installed. Also, all but one of these moodlets requires your Sim to have the Eco-Friendly trait.
